            Today (Tuesday) state lawmakers convene in Juneau for the first day of the legislative session. Kodiak's Republican legislative delegation is well placed with state Senator Gary Stevens serving as senate president and state House Rep. Alan Austerman the majority leader.

            Governor Sean Parnell has already seized the initiative by pushing for legislation that would offer tax breaks and incentives to oil and gas companies to promote further expansion.

            But Kodiak's legislators say they are skeptical that's the right move. Austerman says that up to 90 percent of the state's revenue comes from energy royalties, and he says that many in Juneau are convinced that tax breaks are necessary to boost production.

            Pier 3-the cargo dock-is showing its age. Engineers say it has just another 5 years of design life left.

            The Kodiak City Council last week approved a study to develop concepts for replacing the dock that serves Horizon Line.

            It's a small contract-just under $40,000-but the results could have a major impact on Kodiak's shipping abilities.

            Harbormaster Marty Owen says the concept design will give local decision-makers a better idea of what's needed and what to consider before replacing the seriously aging cargo pier.

            He spoke with KMXT's Maggie Wall recently about the project:

Fish Board Moves to Protect Kings PDF Print E-mail

            A plan designed to repair the chinook salmon run on the Karluk River will impose new restrictions for seiners and trawlers fishing near the mouth of that river. During their meeting last week in Kodiak, the Alaska Board of Fisheries adopted an action plan designed for the conservation of kings which have seen dwindling returns in recent years.

            The new regulation empowers state biologists to trigger restrictions when escapement numbers fall below pre-set targets. This would require commercial sockeye fishermen to immediately return any chinooks greater than 28 inches long that are caught in seine nets. The regulation will be in effect through August 1st. The restricted area is in state waters, three miles from shore and extends more than 30 miles on the western side of Kodiak Island.

            But some critics complained the provisions did not include sportfishing charter boats which will be exempt from the non-retention rule to be imposed on seiners. And the board's decision to tack on an amendment to completely ban trawling in an 18-square mile area around the mouth of the Karluk River led board member John Jensen of Petersburg to oppose the plan.
