Natural Gas Pipeline[]

The below are notes; we need references...

Probably the hotest issue for this election is a proposed natural gas pipeline from the North Slope. Alaskans overwhelmingly support the construction of such a pipeline, but there are great disagreements over how negotations should be carried out between the state and the oil companies. The oil companies would provide the investment capital for construction of the pipeline. Murkowski's plan is criticized for locking Alaska into a deal with specific companies who would be free to build the pipeline or not based on their own business needs. The plan also promises reduced taxes and legal immunity for the oil companies.
