Lt. gov. certifies coastal management initiative

ANCHORAGE (AP) — A citizen's initiative to establish a coastal management program has been certified for the ballot, but it might not be needed.

Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell on Friday certified the initiative after reviewing signatures and determining it met the requirements for the ballot.

However, a House bill has been introduced this session to also re-establish the program.

If it's determined to be substantially close to the initiative and passed by lawmakers, the initiative won't have to go the ballot.

The program, which lets states put conditions on certain activities on federal lands and waters, lapsed last year after several failed attempts by lawmakers to save it.
