ok, so how are you tying that to unions? That doesn't prevent us ships from bringing it?<quoted text>
You are correct with respect to Alaskan oil, the export of which to foreign ports was prohibited in 1977 under the Alaska Pipeline enabling legislation.
However, the Jones Act prohibits the use of foreign flag vessels between Alaska and the US West Coast for all other shipping, increasing costs for Alaska residents and businesses.
Trying to blame unions is simply pathetic
