Governor Responds to EPA Final Report

January 15, 2014, Juneau, Alaska – Governor Sean Parnell today released the following statement in response to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) releasing its final Bristol Bay Assessment.

“Unfortunately, today’s EPA report comes as no surprise to Alaskans,” Governor Sean Parnell said. “This report is little more than a pretext for an EPA veto of the state’s permitting process, something the federal Clean Water Act prohibits. As my record demonstrates, I will not trade one resource for another, and every permitting application—when filed—deserves scientific and public scrutiny based on facts, not hypotheticals.”
