The Draft State Implementation Plan (SIP) has been released by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC). The SIP is ADEC's roadmap for how Fairbanks and North Pole are going to come into compliance with federal law, i.e., the Clean Air Act. Unhappily, the roadmap ADEC has drawn up says we can't get there until 2019. That is unacceptable and we have to give ADEC our comments about the weaknesses of the plan.

The public comment period is open now and there are opportunities to attend Open Houses to learn more about the SIP and to comment on it in person if you wish to. Written comments are due VERY soon: December 19-- so we urge you to review the attached documents right away and determine when and how you can participate.
