GOVERNOR PALIN MEETS WITH HOUSE MAJORITY
Governor Sarah Palin today met with the Republican House Majority in the Governor’s Conference Room to discuss gas pipeline issues, and her proposed Alaska Gas Pipeline Inducement Act (AGIA). Drue Pierce, 17 year veteran of the Alaska Legislature, and now Alaska’s gas pipeline representative in Washington DC, gave us an update. Commissioner Tom Irwin gave us additional insight into ongoing pipeline negotiations. The governor met with the House Minority previously.
Photos show Governor Palin at the meeting, Drue Pierce brifing us, with Palin's Chief of Staff Mike Tibbles looking on, and a portion of the my legislative colleagues at the conference table.
The highlight is the willingness of Governor Palin to work with the legislature in the common goal of getting an appropriate gas pipeline contract. This is a major positive difference in style from the previous administration. Bottom line: I’m encouraged.
