It shall also be a requirement of the Alaska Energy Allocation Assistance Office to establish and maintain an informational program through the public media advising Alaskans of the services available through the office and to conduct an informational effort to inform the public regarding energy conservation measures.
Dated this 24th day of January, 1974.
