State still rolling over for Big Oil
To the editor: Is Alaska a third world country? I watched a program on how the Congo is ripped off by big multinational mining companies — legally done, in deals made between the multinationals and the government officials. I was reminded of ex-Gov. Parnell’s long, shrill battle to put SB21 in place, replacing Alaska’s Clear and Equitable Share (ACES) taxation, under which the Alaskan coffers grew in step with the...
