We, the undersigned, would like to bring the following problem to your attention and suggest recommendations to resolve the situation.
PROBLEM: The U.S. Forestry Service has decided to close all roads and trails in both the Chugach and Tongass National Forests in Alaska to motorized vehicles (cars, trucks, atvs, etc). This clearly denies miners from accessing their claims as well as all Alaskans from enjoying the Alaskan wilderness.
SOLUTION: The State of Alaska (Governors Office) should appropriate the monies necessary for the Alaska Attorney General to fight the Federal Government (U.S. Forest Service) to keep all roads and trails open for public use by motorized vehicles.
ALASKANS NEED TO GOVERN THE LAND WITHIN ALASKA NOT THE FEDERAL
These statements are agreed upon by the following signers:
