The man who oversees the Bureau of Indian Affairs says no decision has been made to move the Alaska regional office from Juneau to Anchorage, despite rumors making the rounds in the state. At an oversight hearing this morning in Washington, DC, Senator Lisa Murkowski raised the issue with Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Carl Artman. She asked Artman to confirm or refute claims by Alaska region director Niles Caesar that the decision has been made and that Caesar is under a directive from the Interior Department to move the office to Anchorage.
