Sealaska bill needs separate Congressional debate

The House version of the Sealaska Land Transfer bill, may be coming up for a vote as early as next week. This is a very controversial bill and is opposed by many Alaskans. It should be debated before congress and voted on its own merits. It must not be lumped in with other bills.

This bill gives dozens of the best sites for tourism and energy development to Sealaska without further community input. The residents of Tenakee Springs are concerned about the development of Upper Tenakee Inlet for geothermal energy being put into private ownership. We need the opportunity to comment on that proposed selection.
