On a regular basis, council board members and staff meet with government officials on matters of policy regarding the Prince William Sound tanker trade. The council’s goal in doing so is to keep lawmakers apprised of citizen concerns and foster a good working relationship between the lawmakers and the council.
The council monitors actions, legislation, and regulations related to terminal operations, tanker operations, or oil spill prevention and response.
To track developments in the state capital, the council retains a monitor under contract during the legislative session. The council also monitors federal government actions and issues through a contract representative in Washington, D.C.
This activity is coordinated by the Legislative Affairs Committee.
