Expanding oil and gas exploration in the Gulf of Mexico: Editorial
The Obama administration's announcement Monday that it plans to auction 38 million acres of offshore oil and gas leases next year is a significant step for our nation's energy independence and for the economy of our region. The administration, however, is running behind the exploration time line it had mapped out before the 2010 BP oil spill. Not restoring that earlier time line remains a missed opportunity. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management said the sale, scheduled for March 30 in New Orleans, will include about 7,250 federally owned oil and natural gas drilling tracts located between three and 230 miles off the coasts of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi. Regulators estimate the sale could lead to production of almost a trillion barrels of oil and almost 4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. The Times Picayune

Alabamians third least likely to pay income taxes, Tax Foundation says
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Alabama has the third highest number of those who don't pay income taxes, according to The Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan and conservative-leaning Washington think tank. The report, using data from 2010 tax filings -- the most recent available -- showed 40.3 percent of Alabamians filed with zero or negative tax income liability. The only two states with a higher amount are Georgia (44.5%) and Mississippi (42.5%). Alaskans were most likely to pay income taxes -- 22.5 percent of the state filed at least higher than zero. The data did not take into account those who did not file a tax return. The Birmingham News

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects.
