The Alaska State Legislature's Special Committee on Fisheries will hold a hearing on transboundary mining and fishing concerns on October 12th in the Beltz Room at the Alaska Capitol Building in Juneau.

This meeting will last from 10am until 4 pm. We will begin receiving public testimony at 12:30. Folks in Ketchikan and Saxman can provide their testimony from the legislative information office on the third floor of the White Cliff building, which is at 1900 1st street.
