The Feds Finally Speak Up

The gas pipeline news has been dominated by the lively public dialog between Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and ConocoPhillips.

We haven't heard much from Alaska Senators Ted Stevens or Lisa Murkowski since The AGIA process short listed TransCanada.

Drue Pearce, the Federal gas pipeline coordinator spoke to
the Senate Resources Committee Monday.

Her comments were supportive of the Governor but she held out the possibility of Congressional intervention if Alaska cannot assemble a workable project.

The Alaska Legislator will continue to hear testimony from the Governors AGIA team, TransCanada and ConocoPhillips.

With any luck the process will yield a pipeline project soon, without the need for federal intervention.
