(a) This section applies to administrative appeals or petitions for reconsideration of a decision in an administrative appeal to the commissioner of natural resources, except for those administrative appeals or petitions done under AS 38.35 or AS 43.82. If a conflict occurs between this section and other state law existing at the time of enactment of this section, the provisions of this section control.
(b) If a person is aggrieved by a decision of the Department of Natural Resources not made by the commissioner and is otherwise eligible to seek the commissioner's review of the decision, the person may appeal to the commissioner. The person may not file a petition for reconsideration of the commissioner's decision on the appeal. The commissioner's decision on the administrative appeal is a final administrative order for purposes of filing an appeal of the administrative decision to the court.
