Tuesday June 3rd the House gaveled into Special Session to begin consideration of the TransCanada Alaska Pipeline. We have sixty days to vote “Yea” or “Nay” on the proposal under the terms of the AGIA legislation. I wrote in my May blog and June legislative newsletter, “The Clock is Ticking,” and so it is.

Yesterday and today the legislature met in the gym of the Terry Miller Building, across the street behind the capitol (see photo). We received detailed information from expert consultants hired by the Legislative Budget and Audit Committee: Dan Dickinson, CPA; Barry Pulliam of Econ One Research; Lesa Adair, Muse Stencil & Co; Dr. John Neri, Benjamin Schlesinger & Associates. We asked many questions. So far, it’s an excellent fact-gathering process.
