Yes on Alaska Ballot Initiative 1: Stand for Salmon

Alaska

This measure would establish new requirements and a new process for permits for any projects affecting bodies of water related to the activity and habitat of salmon, steelhead or other anadromous fish, and to prohibit any projects or activity determined to cause significant and unrestorable damage to such fish habitats.

Under this new system, developers applying to build near or in these habitats would be split into two classifications, major anadromous habitat permits, and minor anadromous habitat permits.

No permit would be granted for a project that, according to the standards set out in the initiative, was determined to cause significant damage to a fish habitat.

This initiative would allow for the construction of any vital infrastructure projects.
