Opinion

It’s rare for the Legislature to provide a welcome surprise these days, but one came Saturday with the passage of a compromise deal on oil tax credits that is forecast to save the state hundreds of millions of dollars per year. Although the legislation passed at the end of the group’s second special session doesn’t go all or even most of the way toward closing Alaska’s multibillion-dollar budget gap, it is at least a good step in that direction and a hopeful sign that compromise — even on consequential, complicated revenue solutions — is possible for legislators. Legislators should build on this progress.
