Broad, Over-reaching Regulations Threaten Alaska

By Frank Hodnik

If you recognize that almost half the state of Alaska is already owned, controlled and regulated by the federal government and that development is already severely monitored and restricted out the wazoo, then think twice about this measure. The measure would cover over 19,000 streams and bodies of water in Alaska. This isn't just about the Kenai, Naknek, Russian River etc.

Ballot Measure 1 will greatly affect the economy and growth of Alaska

By John H. Lamont

If “Stand for Salmon” is passed by the Alaskan voters I might as well (with all the other indigenous and other races of Alaskans) leave my home state to the Green Environmentalists (with powerful wealthy donors) that live in the contiguous 48 states to be the voice and make decisions for Alaska! I do not support “Stand for Salmon” it will greatly affect the economy and growth of Alaska.

Stand for Salmon is deceptive

By Vicki Otte

Alaskans, don’t be fooled by the Stand for Salmon ballot measure. Their supporters say it’s about protecting fish habitat. It’s not. Their entire campaign is deceptive. The real consequences of Ballot Measure 1 are nothing short of devastating.

Don’t Stand for Misleading and Harmful Ballot Measures

By Dave Marquez

At first, Ballot Measure 1 sounds like a great idea, and its backers probably hope you give it nothing more than a passing glance. Because when you compare what Ballot Measure 1—sometimes called Stand for Salmon—claims to do with what it actually does*, you’ll understand why this proposal is reckless and harmful to Alaska. While its intentions may be admirable, its actual effects will be costly and harmful to Alaskans and to our communities.

Puddles Aren't Anadromous

By Jeremy Ellis

The measure would turn every stream, down to a trickle of meltwater at the top of mountain, anadromous. It also puts the burden on proving waterbodies aren't anadromous instead of proving they are.

Stand for Salmon initiative is too extreme

By Genevieve Schok Jr.

Flowline is focused on oil and gas and jobs for Alaskans. We proudly call Fairbanks home, and we care deeply about what happens here. The fact that Ballot Measure 1 would make it more difficult for our community to grow and prosper is unacceptable.

The Stand for Salmon Act is Inappropriate on Many Levels

By Joe Nicolette

In looking at the Stand for Salmon Act, it does not appear to allow for mitigation offset approaches, that have been accepted over the past 25+ years by the U.S. Federal Government (and written into law) and now a preferred approach in Europe. This aspect of the Act will singularly prevent any significant development in Alaska.

The Deception of Stand for Salmon

By Curtis Thayer

The Alaska Chamber has long been an outspoken voice for pro-business policies that grow our economy and create economic opportunities for Alaskans.
