Politicians to Discuss Federal Overreach

A host of state and federal politicians will gather this month in Anchorage to discuss federal management of Alaska, and where state and federal managers are facing conflicts.


The meeting, hosted by the Alaska Outdoors Council, will be held on August 12 and 13 at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage.


President Bill Iverson said he was impressed by the list of special guests, which includes: Senator Lisa Murkowski, Senator Mark Begich, Congressman Don Young, Governor Sean Parnell, Attorney General Michael Geraghty, Deputy Commissioner of DNR Ed Fogels.


The Council is especially interested in how the federal government plays a role in Alaska’s outdoors. Iverson said they’ll be considering “the current relationship between federal managers, responsible for managing 62% of Alaska, and Alaska state managers responsible for natural resource management and development statewide.”


The event is open to the public, you can register online.
