HAINES - State House and Senate energy committees are holding a series of meetings to take public comment on statewide energy policies.
At Wednesday's joint hearing at the Southeast Conference Annual Meeting in Haines, lawmakers also are getting a briefing on a hydro project south of Skagway that will tie into a submarine cable that connects Skagway and Haines.
Lawmakers plan additional public hearings next month at the Bristol Bay Energy Summit in Dillingham and the Alaska Federation of Natives convention in Anchorage.
