It sounds like Gov. Frank Murkowski is doing too little too late once again. The state doesn't need task forces to tell us what the problems are surrounding Agrium. (They aren't making enough reliable income.) We need people, in government, with insight that can hear and see these things happening before they come full circle.
We also needed leaders that were willing to listen to what Agrium was saying before it went this far.
It's not just the price and quantity of natural gas. It's the local and borough taxes they have to pay. Why not lower these taxes for all business owners and let the people keep their jobs? The people working for them would pay their taxes and help keep our local economy strong.
When people have reliable jobs, there is less crime and other problems associated with so many being unemployed. I would think this would be a win-win for all of us.
