The House Heating Reclamation Act missed the ballot deadline for 2017, but that is not stopping the effort to prohibit the borough's heating regulations.
Despite sponsors issuing the House Heating Reclamation Act on June 23rd, the petition failed to be certified by August 3rd, due to a lack of signatures.
Therefore, it will not be on the upcoming ballot in October.
The fight to stop the borough from regulating combustible fuels and solid fuel heating appliances will continue with support from Republican State Representative Tammie Wilson of North Pole and the Republican Women of Fairbanks.
The sponsors of the act still have until September 21st to get the required number of signatures and the proper certification for the 2018 ballot.
