Governor Sarah Palin presented her first “State of the State” Address tonight before a joint session of the Alaska House and Senate. It was well received. Behind the Governor Palin in the photo are Senate President Lyda Green and Speaker of the House John Harris. I took this photo from my seat on the House floor.

I was especially impressed when she said, “We can help make this world a better place, a safer place, and we can inspire greatness one way - by leading through example. First and foremost, we must lead with trust – founded upon a most ethical government."

Governor Palin also brought news she’ll be proposing an “Alaska Gas line Inducement Act”” (AGIA), and called it a “new approach to obtaining a gas pipeline contract.” As she explained, “The centerpiece of this is to induce construction of the gas pipeline. A gas line constructed on our terms, without selling Alaska’s sovereignty. This law allows a transparent and competitive process. It jumpstarts progress with incentives, and strikes the right balance on a project for the state, the nation, project proponents, and producers. It will be good for all!”

The governor has her work cut out for her, and I wish her the best! So far, she's doing great. Yes, I did vote for her.
