Alaska Moves One Step Closer to Building GaslineApril 20, 2014
Juneau, Alaska –Representing significant and historic progress on a gasline that gets Alaska’s gas to Alaskans first, the Legislature today passed Senate Bill 138 on a bipartisan basis. With the passage of this legislation, Governor Sean Parnell’s bill to advance a large-diameter Alaska natural gas pipeline project, Alaska is poised to become an owner in the Alaska LNG Project.
“This is truly a historic moment for Alaskans,” Governor Parnell said. “By passing Senate Bill 138, the Legislature has put Alaska on a path to controlling her own destiny by becoming an owner in the Alaska LNG Project. Alaskans have waited a long time for a gasline, and for the first time in our history, we have alignment, authorization from the Legislature, and a clear path forward. The Alaska LNG Project has begun.”
