Palin administration launching subcabinet focused on rural issues

Governor Palin had hoped to sign the administrative order officially creating the Rural subcabinet in Hooper Bay today, but weather foiled the event. The 8-member group will be chaired by Attorney General Talis Colberg and gathers commissioners from labor, military and veterans affairs, education, public safety, Commerce and others in an effort to develop a plan for helping rural Alaska deal with rising costs and little opportunity for jobs.
