The article reports that newly elected Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is in favor of a natural gas pipeline from the North Slope to markets outside the state. In her January 17, 2007 State of the State speech, Palin put construction of a natural gas pipeline at the top of her priority list. Palin calls her plan the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act, or AGIA. The governor is in a tricky position because BP, ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips control the North Slope's gas reserves.
