Federal-State Natural Resource Issues in Arctic Alaska

  • Ned Farquhar
Conference paper


Federal-state relations in Arctic Alaska today are largely the product of land and resource statutes enacted by Congress between 1971 and 1980. With the passage of these encompassing laws, a range of issues and concerns related mostly to control over resources has emerged to dominate the Arctic policy scene. In the mix of issues, single trends in federal-state relations are difficult to discern. However, it is clear that the Arctic’s resource wealth and unique conditions contribute to a situation in which federal and state interests are often in conflict.
