Dear Commissioner Galvin and Commissioner Irwin:

Thank you for the opportunity to submit comments on the current status of the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA), and specifically the determination of whether the TransCanada application qualifies for the issuance of a license under the terms of AGIA.

RDC is a statewide business association comprised of individuals and companies from Alaska’s oil and gas, mining, forest products, tourism, and fisheries industries. RDC’s membership includes Alaska Native corporations, local communities, organized labor, and industry support firms. RDC’s purpose is to encourage a strong, diversified private sector in Alaska and expand the state’s economic base through the responsibledevelopment of our natural resources.

RDC has a long-term and abiding interest in the commercialization of North Slope gas resources and has been intimately involved in trying to achieve this goal since its inception.

Thank you for your consideration of RDC’s comments. We look forward to continue working with you and the Legislature so that we Alaskans will benefit from the construction of a pipeline and the resulting gas economy.
