Blinded Me with Science: Begich Town Hall Videos
Out of the 50 or so attending the open Q&A with the Senator, roughly half of them were wearing either a “No Pebble” button or sticker. Attendees of the town hall were not pleased with Sen. Begich’s “let’s wait for the science to come in” responses to Pebble Mine concerns.
Sen. Begich also discussed plans to help veterans work through the problems at the Veterans Administration, and saving a local landmark from federal laws.
Check out the videos below to hear his remarks on Pebble, the EPA, and why he’s waiting to decide if the mine is good or bad for Alaska.
