ANWR AMENDMENT GOOD FOR ENERGY BILL
How dare he? Sen. Frank Murkowski (R-Alaska) this month threatened to upset the whole energy legislation apple cart by proposing an amendment to allow oil and gas leasing of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Coastal Plain. The nerve of some people! If Murkowski proposes his amendment, senators might have to vote on ANWR leasing-in an election year, no less. What a mess that would be.
