    The EPA is now run by a person who thinks the EP in EPA isn't needed......the study is done, but let's revisit.... will slicing the top of the earth of this area will affect salmon runs?....hmmmm...oh hell, the fish will be fine.....go suck a bag of dicks Pruitt.....

    Re: Update on the Pebble Mine and EPA

    I would encourage all of you to get involved and spread the word. This is something I am actively involved in here in Alaska.

    Recently, we received word that the Chuitna Mine project has been indefinitely suspended.

    We are trying to get legislation introduced that would amend current legislation to give ADF&G more power to protect salmon streams, to include stiffer fines and jail time for law breakers. This would also include a habitat impact study to any mine proposed on anadromous water ways. There is more to it obviously, but this is just the down and dirty of it.

    When you have commercial fisherman, sport fisherman, and subsistence fisherman, all backing the same proposed legislation, then you know it is a good thing.

    The TU chapter here is heavily involved in this as well. I've personally had multiple meetings with our area representative to discuss issues and sign petitions.
