The article reports on the concerns by the state of Alaska about the perception of the state by the rest of America as the Freeloading Frontier. Governor Frank Murkowski wants to hire a public relations firm to spread the word that the state is willing to take advantage of the environment for profit and not depend solely from federal dollars as a solution to this problem. He also aims to sway public opinion in favor of opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling that would incidentally bring in lots federal revenues.
