Begich Statement on Revised Bristol Bay Assessment


U.S. Sen. Mark Begich made the following statement following today’s release of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) revised Bristol Bay assessment:

“The EPA was asked some tough questions by Alaskans and their own hand-picked peer review panel about how large scale development might affect the rich salmon resources of Bristol Bay.  While I remain opposed to a pre-emptive veto of this or any other project, an open, public process that answers Alaskans’ questions and puts better science on the table is a good thing.  I look forward to reviewing this assessment and hope it answers questions about whether this project can meet the high hurdle of developing a large-scale mine while protecting our renewable resources.”
