FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Governor Mike Dunleavy is also considering repealing the alcohol and marijuana control boards in an effort to streamline government.
According to the Associated Press, the plan was outlined in a letter to commerce department employees, and in a memo from the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office Director, Erika McConnell.
The documents say they want to dissolve the boards and transfer authority to the commerce commissioner.
Dunleavy spokesman, Matt Shuckerow, says further details will be released when the legislation is introduced.
Marijuana control board chairman, Mark Springer, says he is concerned about public involvement if the boards are eliminated.
