Please answer all questions to the best of your ability. All answers will be printed in the proposal book along with the proposer's name (address and phone numbers will not be published). Use separate forms for each proposal. Address only one issue per proposal. State the issue clearly and concisely. The board will reject multiple or confusing items.

AAC stands for Alaska Administrative Code. Fish and Game regulations fall under Title 5, hence are prefixed "5 AAC". If known, enter the series of letters and numbers which identify the regulation to be changed. For example

Write a short explanation about the issue your proposal addresses, or why you are proposing the regulation. Address only one issue per proposal. State the issue clearly and concisely. The board will reject multiple or confusing issues.

State why the regulation change should be adopted or provide an explanation about what will happen if the regulation is not changed.

To assist you in development of your issue statement (#2 on the form), you may want to consider the following:

  • What would happen if nothing is changed?
  • What are other solutions you considered? Why did you reject them?

Print or type your proposal as you would like to see it appear in the regulation book. The boards prefer that revised regulatory language is provided. New or amended text should appear first and be in bold text and underlined. [REGULATORY TEXT BEING DELETED SHOULD BE FULLY CAPITALIZED AND ENCLOSED IN BRACKETS]. It is not necessary to bold and underline text if entire change contains new language.


AAC 85.025(3). Unit 9(B) Caribou.

NONRESIDENT HUNTERS: 2 [3] caribou; however, no more than 1 bull may be taken.

Alternatively, you may state your changes in clear sentences. For example, "Reduce the bag limit for caribou in Unit 9(B) to two caribou."
