FAIRBANKS – The state has given the Fairbanks North Star Borough the go-ahead to continue its wood stove exchange and removal program even though the borough can no longer enforce air pollution regulations.

The borough halted the program to review it in light of the recently passed Proposition 3, which bars the borough from regulating air emissions from home heating devices in any way, but the state’s approval doesn’t mean the program will be back to normal.
