Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell has certified an application for a ballot initiative that proponents are calling “Bristol Bay Forever.” The initiative would allow Alaska residents to vote on a proposed bill that would require legislative approval before certain large-scale metallic sulfide mines could be developed in the Bristol Bay area. “Bristol Bay Forever” will go on the ballot if its sponsors collect 30,169 signatures of qualified voters.
