On June 3rd KSKA (91.1FM) aired the audio of Commonwealth North’s May 28th forum on the North Slope natural gas pipeline project. Our panel discussed how Alaskan’s should evaluate the benefits of the project in the context of Alaska’s constitutional requirement that the legislature ensure Alaska’s resources are used for the, “maximum benefit of its people.” The panelists included former Alaska Department of Natural Resources Deputy Commissioner Marty Rutherford; UAA Professor of Economics, Gunnar Knapp; and Alaska journalist and author, Dermot Cole. The moderator was Larry Persily, Federal Coordinator for Alaska Natural Gas Projects and former Deputy Commissioner at the Alaska Department of Revenue.
