Letter: Good deals for oil, mining companies, not the state

Re: oil royalties to the state. The oil companies’ position is “charge us less so we can pump more, we’ll throw in a few jobs.” Wow, what a good deal! For the oil companies.

Re: Pebble. The mining companies’ position is “we want to dig a huge hole, take what we want and leave behind the waste.” How many studies do you need to figure that out? Wow, another good deal! For the mining companies. You can’t eat what they are shoveling. Chances are, if you’re for them, you’re making money from them. Your bias. 

To: the state. Read your oil leases again. They are still being broken as we speak.
