Balash Appointed Natural Resources Commissioner

Gov. Sean Parnell has named Joe Balash as his Natural Resources commissioner.

Balash has served as acting commissioner since September, and he was previously a deputy in the department. He was one of the governor’s point people on the recent overhaul of the state’s oil tax system.

Balash replaces Dan Sullivan, who left his commissioner position to run for U.S. Senate.
