ALASKA TAX WAS A WARNING..

SUBTITLE: A $50-A-HEAD TAX ON CRUISE PASSENGERS DISEMBARKING IN ALASKA DIED IN THE STATE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, BUT THIS HASN'T STOPPED ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERS DEMANDING LAWS TO KEEP ALASKA'S AIR AND WATERS CLEAN. IN FACT, THEY SAY, THE MERE PROPOSAL OF THE TAX WARNED THE INDUSTRY THAT ALASKA IS SERIOUS ABOUT PROTECTING ITS NATURAL RESOURCES. NOW, CRUISE LINES ARE BEING TOLD TO SELF-REGULATE -- OR ELSE.
