After sweeping legislative victories, Alaska governor says it's time for oil industry 'to do their part'

For Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell (R), 2013 is turning out to be a pivotal year. Early this month, Parnell won passage of sweeping state energy legislation that he said will clear the path for expansive new oil and gas industry investment in Alaska. Before the state Legislature left town a week ago, lawmakers approved the governor's controversial plan to slash oil taxes, adopted his streamlined permitting requirements for new energy projects and paved the way for construction of a small-diameter natural gas pipeline to carry energy to south-central Alaska. Fresh from his victories in the Legislature, Parnell is now counting on the oil and gas industry to ratchet up its investment in Alaska energy development.
