House Majority E-News for Feb 4, 2011 ANS Crude: $93.58 Henry Hub: $4.47 ~AGIA Accountability Bill Introduced


(Juneau) - Four members of the Alaska State House Majority Caucus
introduced a bill today that would provide a date-certain timeline for
information being made available to the legislature and public to
allow a determination to be made on whether or not the Alaska Gasline
Inducement Act, or AGIA, process is still viable. The measure is House
Bill 142.

House Speaker Mike Chenault, R-Nikiski, Rules Chair Craig Johnson,
R-Anchorage, Legislative Budget & Audit Chair Mike Hawker,
R-Anchorage, and Labor & Commerce Chair Kurt Olson, R-Kenai,
introduced the bill and have provided the following joint statement:

"The bill simply adds something that was overlooked in the initial
AGIA legislation - a deadline. That's something Alaskans have a right
to expect. Let's get this project started or get on with something
else. If AGIA leads to a viable project, this bill assures work is
launched quickly. If AGIA is not going to work, this bill sets a
reasonable deadline for the administration to tell Alaskans.

Who: Speaker Chenault, Rules Chair Johnson,

LB&A Chair Hawker, L&C Chair Olson

What: HB 142 press conference

When: Monday, Feb. 7 - 12:00 p.m.

Where: Speaker's Chambers, Capitol Room 210
