Alaska Native Representation

In this video clip, Don Young, try to make it so that the Forestry Department takes care of Alaska Natives, but the Interior department is basically putting everything off that would benefit and help Alaska Natives. He also thinks that in the South East cultural areas should be managed by Alaska Natives , not by the Park Services. He is debating a bill of New Growth v.s Old Growth for economic benefits, that has been put off for 35 years and counting. The Interior Department is claiming that they need more information on the bill, the disclaimer language in the bill needs to be rewritten. The interior also claims the bill has several issues in the legislative and that it has not been analyzed by the Neeper process, and that is the reason this bill has been put off!
