Begich Statement on King Cove Lawsuit
U.S. Senator Mark Begich responded to news that a lawsuit over the King Cove Road was filed in federal court in Juneau today.
“It’s frustrating that residents of King Cove have to resort to lawsuits to force the federal government to uphold its responsibilities and act in the best interests of the people. I voted for this exchange in 2009, introduced legislation to force the land swap to clear the way for the road and have been fighting at every level for its approval. Alaskans are tired of the administration’s opposition. I will keep fighting for the safety of the people of King Cove.”
