Sen. Murkowski Slams ANWR Wilderness Bill

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, today issued the following statement after a group of Senators reintroduced legislation to override the preferences of the vast majority of Alaskans, prevent the creation of thousands of high-paying jobs, weaken the nation’s long-term energy security, and deprive Alaska of its best opportunity to pull itself out of recession.

“This bill was dead before it got introduced,” Murkowski said.

In addition to representing Alaska, Murkowski is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
