Begich talks about meeting with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to discuss proposed road out of King Cove.
ANCHORAGE – Calling it a “life or death” issue, Sen. Mark Begich recently spoke with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to talk about the proposed road out of King Cove.
In December, Jewell rejected a state-sponsored land exchange to allow for a one-lane gravel road to be built, connecting the isolated community of King Cove to Cold Bay.
Begich was on Daybreak Wednesday morning to talk about his meeting with the interior secretary that included a delegation of King Cove officials.
