Grades out: Senate majority gets an 'F'

The Alaska Business Report Card was released today and not surprisingly, the group gave the Senate Majority an 'F'.

The ABRC, which includes the Alaska State Chamber of Commerce, the Alaska Support Industry Alliance, Prosperity Alaska and the Resource Development Council, gave the Senate failing marks for its failure to move on the groups' legislative priorities of fiscal responsibility, oil tax reform, regulatory efficiency, litigation reform, general business climate and strategic infrastructure.

The House Majority received an A-, the House Minority a D, and the four-member minority of the Senate an 'A', Gov. Sean Parnell got a 'B'.
