EXXON VALDEZ OIL SPILL (EVOS)

Senator Frank Murkowski and Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Settlement Trust

5/27/01 HICKEL - FRAMPTON DEAL TO FEDERALIZE PRIVATE NATIVE LAND - How did it come about that the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustees spent over half of the EVOS endowment buying land with out any authorizing legislation to do so? Here is how former Alaska Governor Walter Hickel (Alaskan Independence Party, former Republican) did a deal with George Frampton to get $28 million in bail out money for the Seward (Alaska) Sea Life Center.  $500 million then was spent to move private land back to federal ownership in a state that already is almost 90% government owned!
