    Alaska governor threatens to sue Biden EPA over state land development halt – By Merrilee Gasser (Just the News) / Dec 3, 2022

    EPA is finalizing a decision to prohibit development of the Pebble deposit in the Bristol Bay area, the governor said.

    Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy says he’s prepared to sue the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency if it blocks the development of over 300 miles of Alaska-owned land.

    EPA Region 10, which covers Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and hundreds of Tribal Nations, recommended the agency finalize its decision to prohibit development of the Pebble deposit in the Bristol Bay area, the governor said. The EPA has 60 days to make a final determination.

    The governor said he was concerned it could set a “dangerous” precedent by laying the foundation that unelected officials could stop the state from doing development projects in areas with wetlands and fish-bearing streams.
