"I commend Chairman Stoltze and committee members for their focus on growing oil production in Alaska," Governor Parnell said. "Senate Bill 21 offers a new path forward for Alaskans. It offers a more prosperous future for generations to come. The Legislature has worked incredibly hard over the past few months in crafting this legislation. It's time to pass this bill and create an oil production comeback so Alaskans have a brighter future."
