Board of Game to use means testing for Tier 2 subsistence permits

A Superior court decision has cleared the way for the state Board of Game to use income as part of the criteria used for scoring tier 2 subsistence permits. The board will not use resident’s income this year because the court mandated that income consideration must make adjustments for cost of living in various communities–information they don’t currently have– but board members will consider the income guideline in the future.
