Renewable Resource Coalition is an advocacy group that sponsored the Protect Alaska's Clean Water Act (2008).
Primary Sponsors of the Clean Water Act included Arthur J. Hackney, Dale E. Wagner, Mark A. Niver. The sponsors were part of the Renewable Resources Coalition which was also sponsoring the Pollution Zone Act and the Fisheries Conservation Act. The coalition was formed in 2005 to fight the development of the Pebble project.
Citizens, like Anders Gustafson, a fishing guide in the region, said that the coalition was acting on behalf of concerned citizens in the area. This was especially true for those in the area that ran fishing lodges, like money manager Robert B. Gillam which were actively fighting Pebble project.
"Wild salmon and clean water should be more important to Alaskans than gold and copper. Renewable resources should always trump nonrenewable ones," said Richard Jameson, director of Renewable Resources.
