(ANCHORAGE) – Senator Bill Wielechowski (D-Anchorage), along with Representatives Max Gruenberg (D-Anchorage) and Pete Petersen (D-Anchorage) invite citizens to learn about efforts to build a pipeline to get Alaska’s vast reserves of North Slope natural gas to Anchorage and beyond at a public meeting Tuesdayevening at Begich Middle School in Anchorage.
Alaska Commissioner of Revenue Pat Galvin and Pipeline Coordinator Mark Myers will be available to answer questions and give an update on the latest pipeline developments.
“Alaska stands to gain an estimated $66 billion over 25 years if a gas line is built,” said Senator Wielechowski, co-chair of the Senate Resources Committee. “Construction and operation of the pipeline would also generate tens of thousands of new jobs and help bring affordable fuel to Anchorage. The meeting Tuesday is an opportunity for people to get the latest information on this important project.”
