Dunleavy tells feds Alaska is taking over management of 800,000 miles of river

Gov. Mike Dunleavy says, after 62 years of Alaska statehood, he’s finally asserting the state’s right to control submerged lands under navigable lakes and rivers.

“We’re now at the point where we will be physically exerting our sovereignty,” he said during a press conference Friday.

Dunleavy sent a letter to President Biden announcing his stance.

His position has implications for commercial guiding permits and wilderness access on 800,000 miles of river, but Dunleavy’s message is equally about symbolism and state’s rights. It’s a statement of defiance to the federal government.

He said he’s asking the federal agencies “to stop bothering Alaskans” who are on navigable rivers.

3. Well, see...

If the feds are managing it, that means it belongs to all of us.

5. Yeah! Let's deny his civil rights!

It's such a Democratic ideal to throw people in Gitmo.
