Fellow Alaskan –
We remember Martin Luther King Jr. as a symbolic leader of the African-American Civil Rights Movement, a pastor, an orator, Nobel Laureate, and a humanitarian who dedicated his life to ensure equality and justice for all. On this day, we reflect and honor his life and legacy and take the opportunity to recommit ourselves to the elimination of prejudice and intolerance.
We continue to move forward on the Alaska gasline/LNG Project. I was pleased to recently host a meeting and dinner here in Juneau with Bob Dudley, Chief Executive at BP, and his team, to discuss the Alaska LNG Project. Mr. Dudley also appeared to be pleased with the meeting as he explained in an interview after the Juneau meeting. We remain 100% committed to working with the producers to develop this Project: lowering energy costs for Alaskans, putting thousands of Alaskans to work and achieving energy dominance for our country.
