Justice for Alaska Fishing

As a Prince William Sound fisherman, who has an EXXON claim,
I welcome the Knowles' proposal as something new that could just
be a catalyst to force EXXON to stop their stalling proceedures.
Of course such a proposal is certainly not any kind of guarantee
that the Senate would buy into it, any more than Lisa Murkowski's
suggestion that she would urge Congress to allow Exxon-Valdez
impacted fishermen to average any income from an award.
By the way, I also welcome
Ms Murkowski's income averaging suggestion, which appears to
also be a last minute campaign promise.
Now I have a suggestion for
whomever wins this contest - Alaska's fishermen impacted by the
Exxon-Valdez spill could benefit from both of these suggestions/proposals
and I urge you to push them both.
And good luck to you both in

Listen to this
KRBD story... U.S.
Senate Democratic nominee Tony Knowles Monday proposed new legislation
that would force Exxon to settle claims awarded to fishermen
and communities affected by the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill.
Knowles also discussed another initiative to create new federal
regulations for the farmed fin fish industry during a quick campaign
stop in Ketchikan Monday.
