House Finance tackles amendments on gas line project


JUNEAU, Alaska — The House Finance Committee is nearing the end of its work on a bill aimed at advancing a major liquefied natural gas project.

The committee did a relatively light rewrite on the bill, after powering through amendments late Thursday. Co-chair Bill Stoltze planned to bring the bill back for discussion before it's sent to the floor.

SB138, from Gov. Sean Parnell, would set state participation in the project at about 25 percent. It's also aimed at moving the project into a phase of preliminary engineering and design.

Much of the heavy lifting on the bill on the House side was done in House Resources, which completed its work just last week. The gas line bill is one of the major pieces left in the session before the scheduled end Sunday.
