She took office on December 4, , and maintained a high approval rating throughout her term. On July 3, , Sarah Palin announced her resignation as governor of Alaska.
Palin had championed ethics reform throughout her election campaign. Her first legislative action after taking office was to push for a bipartisan ethics reform bill. She signed the resulting legislation in July , calling it a "first step" declaring that she remains determined to clean up Alaska politics. Palin's choice to replace Monegan, Charles M. Kopp, chief of the Kenai police department, took the position on July 11, He resigned on July 25 after it was revealed that he had received a letter of reprimand for sexual harassment in his previous position.
On October 10, , the Republican-dominated Alaska Legislative Council unanimously voted to release the Branchflower investigative report  which found that Sarah Palin abused her power as governor in the firing of Monegan. However, on November 3, , the Alaska Personnel Board concluded that Palin had not violated ethics laws, essentially contradicting the findings of the Branchflower probe.
Tim Petumenos, the attorney hired by the Personnel Board to conduct the probe, stated in his final report, "There is no probable cause to believe that the governor, or any other state official, violated the Alaska Executive Ethics Act in connection with these matters. Palin has promoted oil and natural gas resource development in Alaska, including in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge ANWR , where such development has been the subject of a national debate.
Palin has created a new sub-cabinet group of advisers to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions within Alaska. Shortly after taking office, Palin rescinded 35 appointments made by Murkowski in the last hours of his administration, including that of his former chief of staff James "Jim" Clark to the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority.
The plan has been hailed by some environmental activists as the most ambitious alternative energy project in the country. Only one legislator, Representative Ralph Samuels ,  voted against the measure,  and in June, Palin signed it into law.

She said it will come out of the windfall the state is getting from high oil prices. The legislation was passed and signed into law by Gov. Palin in August The governor said the debit cards were too expensive for the state to administer and wouldn't work in some rural Alaskan communities. Palin is also proposing to suspend the eight-cent-a gallon state fuel tax for one year.
Palin said she wants the Legislature to implement these things by September. Additionally the Palin administration proposed the Alaska's Clear and Equitable Share ACES , a plan to protect tax revenue to the state government from fluctuations in oil prices. Bounties on wolves in Alaska date to at least ; in , the Alaska State Legislature enacted the "Intensive Management Law," requiring management of wildlife for human consumptive use and authorizing specific management actions including "liberalizing hunting and trapping regulations for wolves and bears.
Their concerns were overgrazing of the habitat by large population of moose that were intended for sports hunters, the wolves kept the moose populations in balance with the environment. In , Palin supported the Alaska Department of Fish and Game policy allowing wolf hunting from helicopters as part of a predator control program intended to increase moose populations, which many rural Alaskans subsist on. This drew protest among wildlife activists,  who took the state to court and won.
Though the activists failed to stop aerial hunting, a state judge forced the state to stop paying the bounty. In May Palin introduced Bill to streamline the Predator Program,  and make it more difficult for conservation groups to sue the State. Critics of the bill claimed it removed scientific standards and claim the programs are expensive and not effective.
Since Alaskans were voting the following year on an initiative restricting the practice to Department of Fish and Game personnel, many felt the funds were an attempt to influence the vote against the initiative. The program also allowed the fly-and-shoot, liberalized hunting of black bears with no bag limits in the same areas, in addition to the area from Anchorage across Cook Inlet in Game Unit 16, which allows the killing of sows and cubs as well as males. The judge said that before the Game Board extended predator control into new areas it had to make new findings on the wolves, caribou and bears in those areas.
Palin expressed her personal opinion as a private citizen against State Ballot Measure Four, known as Alaska's Clean Water Act, a week prior to a statewide election held August 26, Conflict among commercial fishing and environmental interests versus mining interests in Alaska's Bristol Bay prompted the ballot petition. The initiative was to prevent waste materials from large-scale mining operations from seeping into salmon watersheds. They also claim that the Measure as written was open to interpretation which could drive stricter environmental standards that shut down all new, large metallurgic mines in Alaska.
Despite this potential redundancy, there are claims that the enforcement of mining industry environmental regulations in Alaska and nationwide are imperfect and pollution outside acceptable limits periodically occurs at existing sites to varying degrees. Also, the downside risk of an environmental accident at the proposed Anglo-American site could permanently decrease fishing activity at Bristol.

In December , Palin wrote an opinion column in which she described her opposition to the listing of polar bears as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act , stating her position was based on a review of expert opinion. After Dirk Kempthorne, the Republican Secretary of the United States Department of the Interior listed the bear as threatened on May 14, , Palin sued the federal government, claiming that the listing would adversely affect energy development in the bears' habitat off Alaska's northern and northwestern coasts, while again questioning the scientific basis for the listing.
Through a federal records request Steiner was able to obtain the e-mails and he found that contrary to Palin's claims, the scientists supported the fact that the bears were in danger. The issue at hand is a rule implemented by the federal government at the time the status of the Polar Bear was changed to threatened. The rule is to prevent the polar bear's status from being used as a tool for imposing greenhouse gas limits; it exempts projects in all states except Alaska from undergoing review in relation to emissions. The Center for Biological Diversity , is also suing the federal government, to change the Polar Bear status from threatened to endangered.
They denounced the Alaska suit's claim that science does not prove polar bear populations are declining. Palin has opposed strengthening protections for beluga whales in Alaska's Cook Inlet. The National Marine Fisheries Service stated that oil and gas exploration had hindered the whale's existence. Palin lives in Juneau during the legislative session and lives in Wasilla and works out of offices in Anchorage the rest of the year.
Palin stated that she would not accept the pay raise. The Alaska Creamery Board, which oversaw the dairy and made the request, met in May and discussed privatizing or possibly closing the dairy. On June 18, Palin replaced the entire membership of the BAC,  which then installed itself as the Creamery Board,  and voted to keep the dairy open for 90 days while reviewing options.
On August 29, , Palin announced that the business could not be made profitable and would be offered for sale. The new owners said that they planned to convert it to heated self-storage units. The sale of the company's bottle-making facility in Palmer was under consideration as of early September. In Palin's gubernatorial campaign, she supported the building of the proposed Gravina Island Bridge , which had been nicknamed the "Bridge to Nowhere" because the island had only 50 residents.
The bridge was intended to provide access to Ketchikan International Airport  and not the residential population of the island. Members of the Alaskan congressional delegation, particularly Representative Don Young and Senator Ted Stevens , were the bridge's biggest advocates in Congress, and helped push for federal funding. The project encountered fierce opposition outside of Alaska as a symbol of pork barrel spending.
The next year, Palin ran for Governor on a "build-the-bridge" platform, arguing that it was essential for local prosperity. I would like to see Alaska's infrastructure projects built sooner rather than later. The window is now - while our congressional delegation is in a strong position to assist. Congress did not, however, reinstate the earmark for the bridge. In September , with no federal money available, Palin removed the state's portion of the cost from her proposed budget.
She stated:. Much of the public's attitude toward Alaska bridges is based on inaccurate portrayals of the projects here. But we need to focus on what we can do, rather than fight over what has happened.
