Now is the time for Alaska to move forward with our own gas pipeline; one that is fully within our state boundaries. We will finance it, own it and determine when it gets built. It will be built and operated with Alaskan workers. Alaskans will take the risk and Alaskans will enjoy the rewards. No longer will we place our future in the hands of others. This is the only way we can control our future. Now is the time to act like the owner state that we are.
