My Turn: Opinions should be supported by facts

Five former commissioners of ADF&G (Rue, Rosier, Collinsworth, Skoog and Brooks) lined up against the bold Murkowski proposal to move part of the Habitat Division from ADF&G to DNR, collectively stating in a recent Juneau Empire letter to the editor: "We fear that sacrificing competent vigilance by ADF&G over critical fish habitat will lead to an unnecessary and tragic loss for all Alaskans."
