Move to Repeal SB 21 Gaining Ground

A move to repeal SB 21, the Governor’s new oil tax legislation, is gaining ground as today the Lt. Governor’s office certified the application for a referendum petition filed last week by a group named: ‘Vote Yes – Repeal the Giveaway.’ Former legislator Ray Metcalfe explained their concern…

 

Metcalfe: “This hands the control of the North Slope back totally into the control of the majors. They have a monopoly up there and as long as they have a monopoly up there, us Alaskans are going to come out on the short end of the stick.”

 

The group now has about 70 days to collect over 30,000 signatures. For more, visit: Vote Yes – Repeal the Giveaway.
