Last week Alaska’s new Acting Governor, Sean Parnell, wrote to Commerce Secretary Gary Locke asking him to declare a fishery disaster for the Yukon.
Yesterday, after Alaska legislators voted to override ex-Gov. Sarah Palin’s veto of accepting stimulus funds for weatherization, Gov. Parnell sent off a letter to the Federal Government accepting the money.
Gov. Sean Parnell announced Monday he had sent a letter to the federal government saying the state will accept the federal stimulus money that Palin vetoed. Parnell said he wants to use the money to reduce energy costs for public facilities and to support ongoing programs.
Many thanks Governor Parnell!!
