The article reports on the financing of the Ruth Burnett Sport Fish Hatchery in Fairbanks, Alaska. The fish hatchery, which Governor Frank Murkowski held a groundbreaking ceremony for it on August 5, 2006, will be funded with the proceeds of $68 million revenue bonds sold by the state in April. Murkowski said that these bonds will be paid off through a surcharge on the fishing licenses of sport enthusiasts. Its construction will start next summer and is expected to complete by 2010.
