Assembly asks senators to hold local Sealaska hearings

SITKA, ALASKA Senate Bill 881 would transfer of about 80,000 acres of Tongass National Forest to Sealaska, the regional Native corporation in Southeast Alaska. The land comes from areas outside original boundaries established in 1971. The Assembly passed a resolution last night urging U.S. senators, including the two from Alaska, to come to Sitka and listen to opinions on the bill. As Ed Ronco reports, the Assembly’s request went through significant changes.
