716 W 4th Avenue
Tuesday, Nov 17
3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Bill Popp, of the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation, and REAP Exec. Dir. Chris Rose will speak on the Statewide Energy Policy Bill on Nov. 17 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Legislative Information Office in downtown Anchorage.
Up to 40 mayors from around the state are scheduled to attend the committee hearing. They will testify about what their communities are looking for in a statewide energy plan, potential legislation and state funding for energy projects.This meeting is part of the Alaska Municipal League Conference being held at the Captain Cook Hotel.
Alaska currently lacks an overall energy policy that frames how Alaskans produce and consume energy for themselves. Such a policy would set an overall direction for the state and guide the many energy programs currently in place.
