Governor Sean Parnell was in King Cove Friday to sign a resolution urging the federal government to allow an access road through the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.
The road would connect King Cove to Cold Bay's all-weather airport for medevacs and other uses. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell nixed the plan last year, saying it would damage protected wilderness.
Now, Parnell and the state legislature are the latest to ask Jewell to reverse that decision.
