State lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say they were pleased by Gov. Bill Walker's announcement late Wednesday of a gas agreement with China.

The five-party memorandum of understanding with Chinese organizations comes after decades of initiatives to try to build a gas pipeline in Alaska.

"This isn’t, you know, a cold call trying to sell a product. This is of national interest both to the United States of America and China."
