Walker Signs Revenue Bill

Governor Bill Walker signed into law House Bill 373, a multi-million dollar revenue bill that passed the legislature unanimously. It formalizes the state’s contract with Tesoro, a refining company.

The five-year contract allows for Tesoro to purchase from the state up to 25,000 barrels of oil per day. It will circulate $127 million in the economy as Tesoro produces up to 59,000 barrels per day at its Nikiski refinery, which employs more than 200 Alaskans.
