JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The House Resources Committee has delayed a confirmation hearing for Roland Maw’s appointment to the state Board of Fisheries.

Committee co-chair Dave Talerico, a Republican from Healy, said the hearing was cancelled Monday after there was a lot of contact about the appointment over the weekend.

An aide later clarified that the office had received calls and emails.

Talerico said he planned to follow up on some of those contacts Monday. He did not know when the hearing would be rescheduled.

Talerico said other items on the committee’s agenda Monday, resolutions related to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, were important.

Gov. Bill Walker nominated Maw in January to replace former board chair Karl Johnstone, who resigned after being told he would not be reappointed when his term expired.
