Let’s get started. Gov.-elect Sarah Palin says she doesn’t plan to announce more cabinet appointments today. Look for her to name more names tomorrow, barring any surprises.
Palin says she’ll begin natural gas line meetings Tuesday and Wednesday. As many as nine groups plan to deliver a one-hour pitch to Palin, incoming Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell and Palin’s acting DNR commissioner, Marty Rutherford.
The three oil companies Gov. Frank Murkowski negotiated with during his try for a gas line will each be part of the talks, but Palin said the companies aren’t meeting with her as a group.
“Instead of Exxon, BP and ConocoPhillips meeting together - remember that allied entity? - they want to meet separately,” Palin said.
I interviewed Palin in her transition office in Anchorage, where she said she was spending the day on the phone. Rep. Bill Stolze walked in as we talked.
