Alaskans voice economic fears over Stevens' indictment

The indictment of Sen. Ted Stevens ? known in Alaska as Uncle Ted ? has many in Alaskans worried about the flow of federal funds into the state, the Washington Post reported today.

In a multi-part story, the newspaper recounts how Stevens' long-time role on the Appropriations Committee funneled money and programs to the state. He was the architect of the 1971 law that created the Alaska Native Corporations, which in recent years have grown to be well-known players in the government information technology market.

"If he leaves the Appropriations Committee, how long do they leave the Stryker brigade here?" the Post quoted Mike Doogan, a Democratic state representative from Anchorage. "There are a lot of things that are attributable to him that are likely to dry up."
