 JUNEAU- The group behind an effort to repeal Alaska's oil tax overhaul has reported raising more than $63,000 for the campaign.

According to financial disclosures, "Vote Yes - Repeal the Giveaway" reported raising about $44,000 of that between May 16 and June 30, as it entered its final signature-gathering push.
The group has a Saturday deadline for turning in enough qualified signatures to get the proposed referendum on next year's primary ballot. Organizers have indicated they expect to meet that requirement.
This is just one of several signature-gathering efforts in Alaska.
There are also proposed ballot initiatives that would raise the state's minimum wage, legalize the personal use and possession of marijuana by those 21 and older and require legislative approval for large-scale mining activity in the Bristol Bay region.

I am not sure about the issue of the oil tax reform or repeal. I am sure that it a good sign for our state that using the signature for a ballot vote is active. The Marijuana issue is a good one although I do not partake I am for making this work for us and not for criminals. I am especially for not punishing marijuana users.
