3 Democrats in the Alaska Senate introduced legislation Wednesday that seeks to protect the rights of those who sue the state about issues in the public interest. As KDLG’s Mike Mason explains, the proposed Pebble Mine is at the heart of the proposed legislation.

Earlier this month the Alaska Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that pits several well-known Alaskans against the State of Alaska. At the heart of the case is the proposed Pebble Mine. KDLG’s Mike Mason listened in and filed this report.
