Thanks to Palin for Habitat move

Posted: Monday, February 11, 2008

I'd like to thank Gov. Sarah Palin for her wise decision to move the Habitat Division back to the Department of Fish and Game. With the move, Fish and Game will once again be able to fully carry out its constitutional mandate of protecting our fish and wildlife resources, provided that the state can both retain and also reacquire qualified professionals whose jobs were eliminated in 2003.

Palin's popularity seems to ramp up a notch every time she reverses an ill-conceived action of the previous governor. If Palin scrutinized the Juneau road project with the same level of attention given to the Habitat Division question, I'm convinced yet another Murkowski-era decision would bite the dust.
