Governor Dunleavy Demands Federal Recognition of State Owned Lands

April 26, 2022 (Anchorage) — Today, Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy announced a lawsuit that asks the courts to recognize the State’s ownership to submerged lands within Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, an ownership granted at Statehood but not yet fully recognized by the federal government. Governor Dunleavy also announced Notice of Trespass and cease-and-desist letters recently sent to the Agriculture and Interior Departments for federal infrastructure, such as docks, that lacks permits on State-owned submerged lands. Both actions are part of Governor Dunleavy’s “Unlocking Alaska Initiative,” which began a year ago to secure Alaska’s submerged lands and navigable waterways.
