Letter: HB77 needs 'real fixes'

Posted: March 20, 2014 - 11:03pm

I’m a small business owner and an elected official in the Kenai Peninsula Borough. I’m writing on my own behalf to register my deep disappointment with the Alaska Legislature and Gov. Sean Parnell over House Bill 77.

We have some of the last remaining wild salmon runs in the world. We we need to protect salmon habitat. In Upper Cook Inlet, a coal company wants to take 100 percent of the flow of miles and miles of wild salmon stream to mine coal; not coal for Alaskans to heat their homes, but coal for China. I agreed with Gov. Parnell when he said he would “never trade one resource for another.” Now I’d like to see him put some real fixes into HB77 so we protect our salmon.
