Alaska's Future, is a front group which, according to its former president, was created by BP, ExxonMobil and ConocoPhillips. The group may be required to disclose its funders and other financial information, following a three-hour hearing by the Alaska Public Offices Commission. Even though commission staff recommended dismissing a complaint brought against the group, the Commissioners decided they wanted to consider the matter further. The group was originally formed to promote a proposal for a pipeline that would serve the three companies. More recently, the group has run television advertisements opposing a ballot initiative that would tax the leaseholders of gas reserves $1 billion a year until a gas pipeline is built. In September, BP spokesman Daren Beaudo told the Anchorage Daily News that the company only intended to disclose what it spent on the campaign after the election.
