Mr. Brune, former Pebble frontman in line to oversee Pebble’s state-level permits as head of the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), overcame his first hurdle in the appointment process for commissioner of DEC.
On Friday March 15th, 2019 Mr. Brune will make an appearance at the House Resource Committee for a second confirmation hearing. The hearing begins at 1:20 pm. Public testimony will begin after a statement by Mr. Brune and questions from the committee.
The Save Bristol Bay campaign encourages Alaskans to contact members of House Resource Committee, and their House Representative, and tell them to say NO TO Mr BRUNE AS HEAD OF DEC.
We also ask Alaskans to testify again in opposition and help send a definitive message that we will not let Pebble’s biggest fan approve its water and air quality permits.
