JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The Senate Resources Committee plans to continue its confirmation hearing of Roland Maw to the state Board of Fisheries.

The hearing began Monday but not everyone who had signed up to testify was able to do so during the allotted time. Committee chair Cathy Giessel said committee members probably have some additional questions, too. She continued the hearing until Friday.

Maw had been a finalist for state fish and game commissioner. But his application died after the Board of Game voted to give him an interview and the Board of Fisheries declined.

Gov. Bill Walker later appointed Maw to the board to replace Karl Johnstone. Johnstone resigned after being told he would not be reappointed when his term expired.

Maw’s appointment is subject to legislative confirmation.
