Exxon Valdez public meeting added

An additional public meeting for state and federal officials to discuss the criteria for the “reopener” clause of the 1991 Exxon Valdez oil spill settlement agreement and to obtain public input on natural resource injuries and ideas for restoration projects will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward.

Under the “reopener” clause the state and federal governments can, prior to September 1, 2006, request Exxon to pay up to $100 million for specific restoration projects for injuries to populations, habitat or species that could not reasonably have been known or anticipated at the time the 1991 settlement agreement was signed.

In addition to attending the public meetings, written comments may be submitted to: Attorney General David W. Mrquez, P.O. Box 110300, Juneau, Alaska 99811-0300 or via e-mail to reopener@law.state.ak.us.
