Alaska has had almost a sole source of state income from the pipeline revenues since the day oil began flowing. For all this time the state legislators have been told to diversify but they like the government gravy line rather than irritating the public with even the smallest of taxes.
The general public in AK is in for a rude awakening when their "pipeline revenues" go up as smoke and state taxes take their place.
NO KIDDING about all the good 'ol boys out of Oklahoma & Texas. We lived in Glenallen( locally known as - the arm pit of society) during the pipeline construction and after a while you would have thought we were in a different country. Ha,ha - that's where a lot of Sourdoughs learned what grits was.
