Parnell Lays Out Priorities for Closing Days

Governor Parnell on Wednesday presented what’s important to him before the end of session – scheduled now for April 18th. Parnell said his focus during the next eleven days will be a list of bills that he says are necessary for the state’s economy.  He outlined them in a letter to legislative leaders on Wednesday. He wants: oil tax credits, a reduction in the tourism head tax, a suspension of the state gasoline tax; a new performance-based scholarship program, and a capital budget that includes money for maintenance work needed on state properties.
