Steller opportunity for a congressional hearing?

Now he wants answers from the National Marine Fisheries Service.

Read the senator's take here.

this is a joke. begich is a democrat, environmental groups support all democrat politiciam
ns including Begich. he will act concerned but in the end nothing will change the only people looking stupid are the fishermen who are democrats who think the democrat party in washington dc wants to hear from them. i do think if obooma gets reelected all fisherman involved in fed fisheries better watch out. you will be considered one of the rich mike svenson
