    Prosperity Issues Federal Issues

    The United States Government controls over 60% of the land in Alaska, has a large and growing regulatory role, and levies taxes on our industries. As such, it plays a key role in determining Alaska’s prosperity.   Here is one of the most important prosperity issues before our federal government:

    Extension Request to EPA for Public Comment on Pebble Area 404(c) Determination  Take Action
    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 10 has proposed to restrict mining in the Bristol Bay region before a mine permit has been filed or reviewed using Section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act.  Because no mine permit is available, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has not been able to review the proposed mine.  Despite this the first and only opportunity to comment on the proposed project and the proposed restrictions theron with just seven public hearings around the state and region and online comment periosd that is due September 19, 2014.  Because of the complexity of this situation, we feel it would make sense to extend the online comment period and provide for more than one public hearing.  Click here to send a letter to the EPA requesting the extension.  Click here for more information from Alaska's Resource Development Council.  Click here for more information on the EPA's Public Involvement plan for the Bristol Bay 404c Process.
