    The people who are the subject of this emergency road should have the strongest input after having the strongest science and engineering data presented to them.

    I've practiced 20 years of enviro law.  I find that many who are most opposed to certain intrusions into sensitive environments for the betterment of a small group tend to live in areas which have already been slathered with tar and concrete to get to jobs, grocery stores, malls, etc.

    I believe everyone should read all of the submissions prior to determining whether Murkowski is a greedy asshole or the tribe is not worth our federal dollars.  

    In the end, the tribe should determine its needs.
