Citizens should vote on oil tax changes

The citizens of this state should be allowed to vote on SB 21, the massive oil tax break giveaway passed in the legislature. As an owner state, the people should have a voice in what does or does not happen as it relates to our oil. A decision of this magnitude should be made by the people of Alaska, not a hand full of elected officials in Juneau.

Because of the outrage throughout the state over the passage of this bill, a group of citizens have rallied together to put a referendum on the ballot that will give Alaskan voters the opportunity to decide the fate of SB 21. If you believe the voters of Alaska should have a vote on SB 21, you can sign a petition to help make it a reality. Many petitions are circulating in the area, and some signing events are planned for next week. There is a signature event on May 16 from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. at the Soldotna Creek Park on the Sterling Highway. For more information or if you would like to sign a petition, please call Sharon at 262-6298 or Kate at 252-4530.

Your vote is your voice!
