Pipeline Hurdles

The Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) passed the Alaska House this week. The bill still requires passage by the Senate and funding before the next wave of hurdles.

Here's a link to a letter posted by RA Dillion concerning the effective date of the TransCanada proposal.

The letter is from Donald Bullock and Tamara Brandt Cook of The State of Alaska Legislative Affairs Agency Division of Legal and Research Service to Representative John Coghill, Jr concerning the effective data of the AGIA license.

Reading the letter it seems like an AGIA license is probably just the beginning of the next phase of Alaska energy lawsuits. Time will tell, but it still looks like construction of a TransCanada Alaska Gas Pipeline is years away - if ever.
