It's time to get back to a real access issue. A Lynn Canal road, even if desirable, is 10-15 years in the future. Meanwhile, we can't ignore our need to bolster access to Juneau and legislative processes. Electronics goes a long way, but physical access is important to some folks.
Everyone who arrives in Haines or Skagway and wants to visit legislators should be given free foot passage to and from Juneau. Cost to the state would be minimal, but the payoff would be big.
