JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - House Resources Committee members have signed onto a letter, outlining issues they want Gov. Sean Parnell’s administration to keep in mind in negotiating gas project contracts.

This assumes passage of SB138, which would set state participation in a liquefied natural gas project. House Finance is now considering that bill.

The issues detailed in the non-binding letter were raised as Resources debated the bill but not considered ripe for inclusion as amendments.

The Resources members, among other things, expressed a desire to ensure oil tax changes or terms are not negotiated or included in project-enabling contracts. They also want to ensure the state can bring in additional partners, if that’s in the state’s best interest.

All but two committee members signed on; Reps. Dan Saddler and Mike Hawker did not.
