JUNEAU- The group seeking to repeal an oil tax cut says it has enough signatures to get the proposal on next year's primary ballot.
"Vote Yes - Repeal the Giveaway" plans to turn the signatures in to the Division of Elections on Saturday, the deadline for doing so. The group needed just over 30,000 signatures, with those coming from a certain percentage of voters in at least 30 House districts. The group believes it has more than enough qualified voters to get the measure on the ballot. The group, in a release, says it has gathered more than 40,000 signatures from all 40 districts.
The division will review the signatures and the petition must be certified or denied within 60 days of filing.
