FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A day after Senator Sullivan commented on the Pebble Mine environmental impact statement, Senator Lisa Murkowski released her opinion on the 14-hundred word document and its supporting materials.
Although the document is long, Murkowski encourages Alaskans to review the statement to better understand the potential impacts of the project.
Murkowski said, “We must have confidence that Bristol Bay's world-class fisheries are fully protected, and I expect the Army Corps process to remain fair, rigorous, and transparent as Alaskans provide their views.”
The impact statement will be published in the Federal Register on March 1st, 2019, opening a public comment period.
The Army Corps will also conduct public meetings across the state in March and April.
