Tongass Roadless Rulemaking Process

In September 2018, Alaska Governor Bill Walker issued an Administrative Order to establish the Alaska Roadless Rule Citizen Advisory Committee to advise the State of Alaska on the future management of inventoried roadless areas in the Tongass National Forest. The Committee is charged with providing recommendations for a state-specific roadless rule that will determine roadless areas essential for infrastructure, timber, energy, mining, access, and transportation to further Alaska’s economic development, while still protecting unique areas for generations to come.

Meridian Institute is supporting the State of Alaska to solicit public input, including the convening and management of the Citizen Advisory Group.
