Report summary

Alaskan Governor Sean Parnell signed Senate Bill (SB 21) in an effort to incentivise investment and stem the state's 25-year decline in oil production. The law, which eliminates the current system's (ACES) progressivity mechanism and amends how tax credits are awarded, will become effective on 1 January 2014.
