Power boat moratorium not in proposal book

In Les Palmer's "An Outdoor View," May 23, "The state of the Kenai," the author asserts the Board of Fish discussed a proposal to place a 15-year moratorium on the use of power boats on the Kenai River.

I agree with the author on many of his points in the article.
