Juneau Empire Op-Ed: Offshore Decision a Win for AK Families

In an op-ed published in the Juneau Empire today, Consumer Energy Alliance-Alaska President Anne Seneca and Alaska Trucking Association Executive Director Aves Thompson applauded the recent Executive Order that revisits and reverses federal roadblocks to domestic offshore energy development, calling the decision “welcome news to families, businesses and Native tribal groups who’ve come to rely on not only the jobs, income and reliable energy that the oil and gas industry supplies, but the revenue that has helped us avoid individual income and general sales taxes.”

They noted that development of Alaska’s offshore energy resources would, among other things, help bring price relief to Alaska businesses and families, achieve greater energy self-sufficiency, and protect the nation’s long-term energy security.
