MMPA

Alaska's lone U.S. congressman and senators introduced legislation in the House and Senate to pre-empt states from banning walrus ivory, whale bone and other marine mammal products.  The delegation proposes amending the Marine Mammal Protection Act, or MMPA, through these new bills.

This is a step in the right direction, Eskimo Walrus Commission director Vera Metcalf said.
