Sponsor Statement for HB 131
Rights of Way in the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge

An Act relating to public rights-of-way and easements for surface transportation across the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge.
Updated: March 19, 1999

The Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge (ACWR) was created by the legislature in 1988. Most of the refuge had previously been classified by the legislature as the Potter Point State Game refuge.

In establishing the ACWR the legislature granted the authority to approve rights of way into the refuge to the Departments of Fish and Game and Natural Resources. HB 131 establishes additional protection for the refuge by withdrawing that grant of authority, and reserving unto the legislature the right to approve surface transportation rights of ways and easements.

HB 131 requires no action by the administration.
