ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 82
OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
February 7, 1985
Administrative Order No. 78, signed on December 20, 1983,
and regulations at 6 AAC 50, pertain to permit regulations and
the coordination of procedures for issuance of state permits
on a project basis. These permit reform procedures and regulations
require that the Department of Natural Resources leasing decisions
in the coastal zone be carefully coordinated with all resource
agencies and provide for the full participation of affected communities.
Prior to the issuance of Administrative Order No. 78 and 6
AAC 50, Administrative Order No. 52 established an Agency Advisory
Committee on Leasing (AACL). This cumbersome group of nine Cabinet
members reported directly to the Governor on the relative costs
and benefits of specific lease sale decisions. While the sentiments
leading to a desire for greater coordination of natural resources
were admirable as embodied in Administrative Order No. 52, I
believe the new procedures in Administrative Order No. 78, and
6 AAC 50, make the AACL superfluous. Consequently, Administrative
Order No. 52 which established the Agency Advisory Committee
on Leasing is repealed.
Dated at Juneau, Alaska, this 7th of February, 1985.
S/S Bill Sheffield
Governor of the State of Alaska
