PETERSBURG – Gov. Bill Walker today signed Senate Bill 28 into law. SB 28 was sponsored by Sen. Bert Stedman (R-Sitka) to increase the Petersburg Borough’s land entitlement to 14,666 acres. When the Petersburg Borough was created by the voters in 2013 they had only received 1,896 acres. With passage of the SB 28, the Petersburg Borough is now on equal-footing with other organized boroughs across the State of Alaska.
