Ranger Program

By Robert K. Rice

Dunleavy is proposing to end the "Ranger Program" that puts marine engineers on the cruise ships to monitor their waste water discharges.

These Rangers are paid for by a $4 ticket fee paid by the passengers. This costs the State of Alaska, nothing! Who and how much was paid, by the cruise ships to end this program?

Only thing that makes sense is someone is owned by big $$ and the Kock brothers.

How does eliminating these watchdogs benefit Alaska?
