Coastal Management Initiative Hearing Schedule Announced (Corrected)

Coastal Management Initiative Hearing Schedule Announced
Lt. Governor Treadwell to hold hearings in ten communities
June 5, 2012, Anchorage, AK – Lt. Governor Mead Treadwell announced today his schedule for ten hearings around the state on a ballot proposal to establish a new Alaska Coastal Management Program (ACMP).
The hearings will be the first required under a new law passed by the Alaska Legislature in 2010. Alaska Statute 15.45.195 requires the lieutenant governor to hold at least eight hearings up to 30 days before the election in which an initiative is to appear on the ballot, with at least two hearings in each of Alaska’s four judicial districts. The ACMP initiative will appear on the August 28th primary ballot.
“I am taking this law seriously and plan to attend each one of these hearings personally,” said Treadwell. “We are working to make sure that some of these hearings can take telephone testimony, as the legislature does, so they will be accessible to all. Alaskans will have their opportunity to debate the issue.”
By law each hearing must include the written or oral testimony of one supporter and one opponent of the initiative.
The hearing schedule is as follows:
Monday, July 2
Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly Chambers
144 North Binkley Street, Soldotna

Tuesday, July 3
