Micciche to Continue Instate Energy and Fishery Focus

This week, members of the Kenai Peninsula Legislative Delegation were featured during a joint Soldotna/Kenai Chamber of Commerce Luncheon. Following the wrap up of their 90-days in Juneau  we asked Senator Peter Micciche of Soldotna what’s still on his radar when lawmakers return to the state’s capital


Sen. Micciche(R-Soldotna):”There are an awful lot of Alaskans across the state that pay exorbitant prices for energy, a lot of them have energy underfoot, but we’ve not helped as a state. We think always as commercially viable energy projects, as opposed to, publicly necessary energy projects in places where there is a commercial gap. I’ll be looking at a lot of those resources moving forward, natural gas for rural Alaskans that have gas production capacity.”


Micciche also discussed fishery related issues


Sen. Micciche(R-Soldotna):” We passed a couple bills this session on Chinook bycatch limits. A key issue for us is making sure that all sides involved in our fisheries, sports, commercial, subsistence, personal use have attiquate returns of fish, and we have healthy rivers and watersheds, and how that’s done is we stop people from being parochial, we stop people form worrying about their pocket book,  we help Alaskans focus on whats most important, that’s fish for future generations.”
