Murkowski habitat shuffle may be reversed by Palin

The Palin administration may make some changes to the state agency that oversees fish and wildlife habitat. As part of the Department of Natural Resources, the Office of Habitat Management and Permitting considers the impacts proposed development projects could have on habitat. The agency had been part of Alaska Fish and Game until it was moved under a controversial order from former Governor Frank Murkowski.
