House Finance Passes Governor's In-state Refinery Incentives
April 15, 2014, Juneau, Alaska – Governor Sean Parnell applauded the House Finance Committee for passing House Bill 287, which extends the State’s contract to sell its royalty oil to Tesoro Refining and Marketing, LLC. The legislation also includes the governor’s financial incentives package to ensure Alaska’s in-state refineries remain strong.
“I commend the House Finance Committee for advancing HB 287, and in particular, I want to thank Representatives Tammy Wilson and Steve Thompson for their work to keep Alaska’s refineries strong,” Governor Parnell said. “Our refineries provide great economic benefits for Alaskans across the state, including jobs, economic opportunities and affordable fuels.”
