Panel OKs road backed by Palin

September 12, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A remote Alaska road supported by Gov. Sarah Palin cleared the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, angering environmentalists who say it is unnecessary.

The road would run through a federal wildlife refuge, linking the fishing village of King Cove, population 800, to an all-weather airport 25 miles north. The road could cost as much as $30 million. Federal approval would not include any earmarks to pay for it.
