This is what you need to know
HB 77 is a sweeping bill that cuts protections for fish, clean water and wildlife will hit the Alaska legislature in 2014. Are you ready to defend your favorite fishing hole, community’s water source or family hunting area?
Alaska is defined by its natural resources and protecting them for the benefit of its citizens is a bedrock principle of our state. The Alaska constitution protects our favorite fishing holes, hunting areas and the clean water we depend on in our communities. Right now our right to the use and enjoyment of our renewable natural resources is threatened by a proposed law that will be considered during the 2014 legislative session. House Bill 77 erodes existing standards and removes reasonable checks and balances in natural resource decisions. If this bill passes the scales would tip drastically toward corporate benefit at the expense of all Alaskans.
