Governor Palin says Juneau’s energy crisis is not a disaster

The governor was briefed this afternoon by her disaster policy cabinet, which met this morning to determine if the capital city would qualify for relief funds after avalanches cut off its supply of low-cost hydroelectric power two weeks ago. It was the second meeting on Juneau’s request for a disaster declaration.   Palin says she concurs with the cabinet’s recommendation.  The city had sought the declaration to access state and federal assistance.
