IN BRIEF - In election year, Peltola walks complicated path on fisheries and drilling

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

U.S. Rep. Mary Peltola of Alaska this spring unexpectedly pulled her support for a Republican-led bill that seeks to pave the way for more oil drilling in the state, opening her up to criticism from opponents who claim she’s supporting a pro-Biden agenda.

It was the latest in a series of moves by the Democrats that led to a mix of reactions from conservation and tribal groups and resource development advocates.

Peltola late last month backed the controversial Donlin Gold prospect, joining Alaska Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan in a friends-of-the-court legal brief expressing support. That effort drew criticism from a tribal group in the region, and praise from industry trade groups. They called the Southwest Alaska mine one of the state’s “most important and necessary economic development projects.”

Also on May 1, Peltola introduced legislation in the House to stop the Pebble copper and gold mine in the Bristol Bay region that’s home to the world’s largest commercial sockeye salmon fishery. That move drew widespread applause from conservation and tribal groups, and opposition from the mine developer.[continues...]

SANA'A (Saba) - The Minister of Fisheries in the caretaker government, Muhammad Al-Zubairi, inaugurated the second fish selling point in Bani Al-Harith District in the capital secretariat.
