Alaska to get $1 million from Japan for debris cleanup

Associated PressSeptember 11, 2012 

Japan is providing money for cleanup of debris from that country's tsunami last year.

KTUU-TV reports that Alaska will receive $1 million from Japan. The money is part of a $6 million appropriation for the task to the U.S. and Canada.

The state's congressional delegation praises the effort but says more needs to be done by the U.S. government.
