Alaska’s Legislature ended a special session early without any action on a gas pipeline bill or on a proposal by Gov. Sean Parnell to lower oil taxes.
The Senate ended its session early last week after the governor pulled his oil tax measure and lawmakers saw little support for the gas pipeline legislation, according to the Anchorage Daily News.
The House followed on Monday.
The special session began on April 18 and could have lasted 30 days.
The pipeline ran into questions from critics about whether the state would end up responsible for the estimated $7.5 billion cost, according to the paper,.
The Daily News said the bill was meant to give a the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. the power to fast-track a pipeline from Alaska’s North Slope to the south central part of the state.
The governor has said he does not plan to call another session.
