Good news! If the majority of the members in the state House of Representatives are correct, Japan's nuclear fallout won't be a concern to Alaskans. Why? Because, like Chicken Little, it seems they believe the sky is falling. This is evidenced by their willingness to give billions in potential state income back to oil companies. And, the oil companies aren't required to do anything to receive it except wait until they decide to take advantage of the tax break -- perhaps years from now when we might be desperate for money to support the state. No sunset clause to let the bill expire in a couple of years and no declining tax breaks for drilling in early years.
I sure feel better! Do you?
