Gov. Sean Parnell has signed legislation that will impact rural Alaska.

One of the three bills he signed in Dillingham on Sunday would
establish Alaska Native Language and Advisory Council. The council
would be charged with evaluating the state's indigenous languages
and making recommendations for preservation, restoration and
revitalization.

Parnell, in a news release, said a culture dies without language
preservation. He said the state will join with Alaskans to make
sure that Native languages live on.

He also signed legislation raising the maximum loan amount for
entry permits under the Commercial Fishing Revolving Loan Fund and
another combining bulk fuel loan programs.
