is what the  tax is applied to. Starting with  PPT and ACES,

Mr.  Bullock explained  that currently  the allocations  are

is  a  progressive  tax  that   increases  in  rate  as  the                                                                    
production tax  value rises above  $30. The  main difference

whereas the previous  version just had a  progressive tax on

Version  T  amends  that  section   by  requiring  that  the                                                                    
Department    of   Revenue    consider   allocating    lease                                                                    
expenditures in proportion to the  BTU equivalent barrels of                                                                    
oil  and  gas produced  from  each  lease or  property.  The                                                                    
purpose   is  to   provide   a   reasonable  allocation   of                                                                    
expenditures  between oil  and gas.  He explained  how taxes

determining   the   production   tax  value.   Since   lease                                                                    
expenditures are applied to the  gross value at the point of

Mr.  Bullock spoke  of Section  9  as being  similar to  the                                                                    
provision in Section 8. This  section adds a new subsection,                                                                    
AS 43.55.170(d), which  has to do with  adjustments to lease                                                                    
expenditures.  It  directs  the  Department  of  Revenue  to                                                                    
consider allocating  adjustments based on the  proportion of                                                                    
the BTU equivalents of oil and gas produced.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
Mr.  Bullock turned  to Section  11 which  makes progressive                                                                    
tax provisions in  the bill retroactive to  January 1, 2010.

the technical changes made in  the bill. He related that two                                                                    
progressivity buckets have  been established. One represents                                                                    
current  oil  and gas  activity,  and  the other  bucket  is                                                                    
export gas.  The progressivity surcharges  for oil  and Cook                                                                    
Inlet and in-state gas would  be calculated together. If the                                                                    
two  were  to  be  separated,  progressivity  on  oil  would                                                                    
increase and  there would  be a tax  increase, which  is not                                                                    
the intent  of the bill.  There was a concern  about keeping                                                                    
the bill revenue neutral.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
Mr. Marks  pointed out that  in the previous version  of the                                                                    
bill  there  was  some  discussion   of  a  credit  for  the                                                                    
difference  between  the  taxes calculated  after  the  bill                                                                    
passed and before. That was  deemed to be cumbersome, so the                                                                    
two  buckets  were  rated   for  progressivity.  No  current                                                                    
activity  would see  a tax  increase. Export  gas would  not                                                                    
dilute  the  oil  progressivity factor.  The  Department  of                                                                    
Revenue fiscal  note is a  zero note because of  the changed                                                                    
progressivity structure.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair Stedman  added that it  would simplify  the process                                                                    
so  the   industry  does  not   have  to  do  two   sets  of                                                                    
calculations. Mr. Marks said that was correct.

Senator Huggins asked  if progressivity on gas  in this bill
