Tuesday, February 25, 2020 – Thursday, February 27, 2020
UFA Board Meetings are open to paid UFA members and guests, except during executive session.
Agenda is subject to change pending speaker availability, committee chair availability, and timing of meeting
Senate Resources committee will take public testimony on Board of Fisheries appointees tomorrow.
UFA opposes Karl Johnstone and we urge you to help by calling in to the committee – and getting others to as well.
There will be plenty of people calling in to support Karl Johnstone – we need your help to ensure there are opposing callers!
Wednesday April 10 – 3:30 PM – Room 205
-Oppose confirmation of Karl Johnstone to the Board of Fisheries
-Mr. Johnstone was blatantly discriminatory against commercial fisheries and the ADFG Comfish division in his previous time on the Board.
-Confirmation of Johnstone would leave the Board of Fisheries seriously “out of balance” with respect to commercial fisheries representation.
To testify – if you are not in Juneau it is best to go to a Legislative Information Office (LIO) at least a half hour before the hearing begins.
If you are unable to get to an LIO, CALL THE LIO NEAREST YOU BEFORE 3:00 p.m to get the Off-Net call in number – See the list of Southeast LIOs below.
If you are outside of Southeast – see the full list of LIOs at https://akleg.gov/lios.php .
