Governor Sean Parnell today applauded the Senate Finance Committee for passing Senate Bill 138, the governor's legislation to advance a large-diameter Alaska natural gas pipeline project to get Alaska's gas to Alaskans. The bill provides the necessary framework for Alaska to become an owner in the Alaska Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Project.
"I applaud the Senate Finance Committee for its open, public process, and for their diligent examination of SB 138," Governor Parnell said. "Our legislation paves the way for Alaska to become an owner in the Alaska LNG Project -- something that will maximize Alaska's gas for Alaskans' benefit. As an owner, Alaska stands to gain more, and I look forward to the full Senate passing SB 138, maintaining momentum on this critical project."
Senate Bill 138 now moves to the Senate floor for consideration.
