ICYMI: Sullivan Holds Hearing on the Implementation of WOTUS

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK), chairman of the Environment and Public Works Subcommittee on Fisheries, Water and Wildlife, chaired a hearing yesterday entitled, “Erosion of Exemptions and Expansion of Federal Control – Implementation of the Definition of Waters of the United States.” The principal topic of discussion was how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are expanding federal control over land and water, including implementing the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule to the Clean Water Act—despite a stay on the rule issued by a federal court and no change in law—and how regulatory overreach is stifling businesses and hurting our economy and private property...

Liberal Oilmen Support Liberal Politicians' Carbon Tax

Alberta's leaders look a lot like Alaska's these days.  We added much to our archives on the way Canada's major oil province is dealing with its own unsustainable spending this week.   There is a difference: Some big oil folks there are supporting tax increases -- for everyone.  Makes 'em look more friendly, don't you think?   Alberta and Alaska: Low oil prices.  Little talk and less action to make sustainable spending cuts.  Private sector job losses.  Government deficits.   Where are competent, honest leaders guided by facts, common sense, concern for current and future generations?  Where are leaders not guided by polls, not snookered by the desire to conform, not committed to populism?  We hope...

Morning Headlamp - Gov. Walker's tax bill has rough opening in Special Session

Wordplay and inaction from Alaskan lawmakers. According to the Alaska Dispatch News, Governor Bill Walker's omnibus tax bill was met with cold shoulders and plenty of puns and metaphors. Rep. Les Gara called it a "recipe for failure." Rep. Bob Lynn, said he didn't want to have to "eat the whole enchilada" and vote against all the tax measures in the legislation even if he objected to only one. The proposed taxes include personal income tax assessed at 6 percent of a person's federal tax bill, plus tax increases on commercial fishing, mining, alcohol, tobacco and motor fuel. Of the eight tax bills Walker proposed, just one — an oil tax measure, which is not part of the omnibus package — made it out of the finance committees and on...

Morning Headlamp - BP to sell Anchorage headquarters

No end in sight. This Legislature's fourth special session began midday Monday when legislators were given bills to address two of Gov. Bill Walker's 10 original agenda items. Those bills were an omnibus tax bill and a seemingly noncontroversial bill providing health insurance to families of emergency responders killed in the line of duty. The administration largely adopted the key points of the omnibus tax bill — formerly House Bill 249 and now House and Senate bills 4001 — that was stuck in the House Finance Committee at the end of the regular session. However, the governor's proposal to reinstitute a state income tax at 6 percent of federal obligation was added to the bill with the group of industry and sin tax hikes. "The pink slip issue goes...
