In Alaska, the House of Representatives has voted 27 to 13 to lower the cruise ship passenger tax that voters approved in 2006.  The Senate has already passed the bill, reducing the head tax from $46 to $34.50, but will need to agree to changes made in the House. Because the legislature has adjourned for the year, it is uncertain what the status of the tax reduction will be for the 2010 season.
