Decoupling bill proposed in House

Posted: January 30, 2012 - 10:05pm

JUNEAU — Another bill that would change Alaska’s system of taxing oil and gas production together has been introduced, this time in the House.

Rep. Mark Neuman says his bill, HB306, is the same measure that passed from the House Resources Committee during the decoupling debate in 2010. Neuman says he intends to propose an amendment to address a particular gas-tax rate. 

He says he disagrees with the governor that the state should wait until there’s an actual gas line project before talking fiscal terms. He says fiscal terms are important to moving a project ahead.

The Senate Finance is also looking at the decoupling issue, which could be included in the larger oil tax debate.

Neuman, a Republican from Big Lake, says he would rather see it stand alone.
