Extra Edition - Highlights from Day One of the Resource Development Council Annual Conference and Tradeshow
Yesterday was day one of the Resource Development Council's (RDC) 37th Annual Resources Conference and Tradeshow!
Headlamp attended part of the jampacked conference, and will be there again today. Many legislators were in attendance, and the Governor spoke in the afternoon.
Among those in attendance were the two new Co-Chairs of the House Resources Committee: Anchorage Democrats Andy Josephson and Geran Tarr. Last year both Tarr and Josephson advocated for higher taxes on the oil, gas and mining industries. Headlamp hopes that Josephson and Tarr listened carefully yesterday as the biggest job creators and tax payers in the state provided the recipe for Alaska's future.
Below are some of the best Tweets from the conference yesterday:
