Short Description of Activity

Review AIDEA resolution to bid on Arctic NWR lease sales themselves; compose and send out email to Broad leaders and to Alaska Soles list to ask them to submit comments; submit comments re same


AIDEA announced this Sunday night, written comments were due Monday and emergency meeting to be held on Tuesday. They wish to do this as they fear no one will bid on the lease sales, and for good reason. This is an unprecedented action as they may not be elegeable to bid under the federal guidelines, this leases purchasing may require legislative action under their own regulations, and why is a state agency bidding on lease sales that should be up to the free market to buy or not?
