In August 2016, through an unprecedented power grab, the U.S. Department of the Interior published a final rule that preempts state management authority, enforces top-down management policies, and violates the rule of law. Among other things, the FWS final rule fundamentally changes the very successful federal-state relationship in managing National Wildlife Refuges (NWR), by removing the authority of Alaska Department of Fish and Game to manage Alaska fish and wildlife for both non-subsistence and subsistence use.


Without the passage of H.J. Res. 69, the final rule could set a dangerous precedent and be applied nationally, which would universally remove state fish and wildlife agencies’ authority to manage fish and wildlife adversely impacting Americans who pursue fish and wildlife on refuges.


Please take this opportunity to call today to urge your U.S. Representative to support H.J. Res. 69 and help protect and preserve our cherished outdoor traditions.
