WHEREAS, the United States Department of Transportation has publicly stated that Alaska is no longer within any official tine zone; and
WHEREAS, efforts by that Department have not yet resolved the question of which zones shall control the time in the various areas of Alaska; and
WHEREAS, certainty in matters of time is essential to the operations of business and industry, to the smooth flow of commerce, and to the conduct of the daily activities and domestic life of all Alaskans
NOW THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Governor, I hereby order that until official time zones are established for Alaska by the United States Department of Transportation, all departments and agencies of the State of Alaska shall continue to use and observe the same time system that has been in effect throughout this summer.
This Order takes effect immediately.
DATED at Juneau, Alaska, this 30th day of October, 1967.
