(Photo by Kimberly Holzer / Flickr)On Wednesday, the state learned how much of $200 million in federal funds will go to recovery from the 2016 pink salmon season disaster in the Gulf of Alaska.Listen nowBarbara Blake, senior adviser with Governor Bill Walker’s office, says Alaska received a little over $56 million.“We’re really happy. We’re really glad that we’re gonna see some form of funding go back out to our communities and out to our fishermen as a result of this. It’s definitely a big positive,” Blake said. “It’s obviously not the amount that we asked for, but we’re happy that we got a quarter of these funds coming to Alaska.”According to Blake, the state originally requested almost $150 million for disaster relief.The pink salmon season was among the fisheries disasters to win money along with fisheries affected by natural disasters, and according to a NOAA press release, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross allocated those funds yesterday.They still have to decide on a spending plan.Blake says the governor’s office met with NOAA this afternoon. She says NOAA and state representatives may work together with the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission to distribute the funds, as has happened in the past.

It’s expected that next year the stage will be just flooded with EVs.“Jonny Smith takes us on a tour of the Geneva Motor Show. 5 years ago there may have been one or two cars on display with a plug. Now there are dozens. Next year there will be 100’s. Some are fantasies that will never se the light of day, some are already in production and thankfully Jonny has the experience to tell the difference.” Geneva Motor Show Pininfarina Battista Electric Hypercar: Photos & Videos Galore Volkswagen Passat GTE Plug-In Hybrid Returns With Upgrades Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on April 14, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle News Fiat Concept Centoventi Allows For Custom Everything: Photos/Videos Source: Electric Vehicle News
