AS 43.82.520. Duties of the Commissioner of Revenue in Relation to Municipal Participation.

(a) The commissioner shall meet with each municipal advisory group periodically to report on the development of the contract provisions that affect the municipalities.

(b) In developing a contract under AS 43.82.200 - 43.82.270, the commissioner shall ensure that each revenue-affected municipality and economically affected municipality receives a fair and reasonable share of the payments provided under AS 43.82.210 in accordance with the following principles:

(1) the share of the payments to revenue-affected municipalities should be given priority over payments to economically affected municipalities with due regard to the anticipated size of the tax base that the contract would exempt from municipal taxation by revenue-affected municipalities;

(2) the share of the payments to municipalities should be determined with due regard to the anticipated economic and social burdens that would be imposed on the municipality by construction and operation of the project;

(3) the respective shares of the total payments to the state and to municipalities should be fixed in a manner to ensure that their respective interests are aligned;

(4) to the extent practicable, the periodic amounts paid to each of the municipalities should be stable and predictable; and

(5) to the extent practicable, the provisions for sharing payments with municipalities should be consistent with the principles established in AS 43.82.210 (b).

(c) In establishing the municipal shares under (b) of this section, the commissioner shall consult with the pertinent municipal advisory group.
