The Alaska Arctic Policy Commission was legislatively created by HCR 23 (1 & 2) in April 2012, and held its first meeting March 23, 2013. The Commission will carry on the work of the Alaska North Waters Task Force (NWTF) in more detail, and create an actionable Arctic policy for Alaska.
The 3rd meeting of the Alaska Arctic Policy Commission will continue its mission to positively influence federal Arctic policy. The Commission will compile a list of all the current federal programs that directly affect Arctic Alaska and Arctic policy, and track and thoroughly investigate each program. These findings will inform the Commission's Final Report.
