Governor Welcomes Judge’s Ruling on Off-Shore Drilling


June 22, 2010, Anchorage, Alaska – Governor Sean Parnell released the following statement on today’s ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman finding that the Obama administration’s moratorium on off-shore drilling was arbitrarily imposed.

“Today’s ruling by Judge Feldman is good for the nation,” Governor Parnell said. “Unfortunately, legal action isn’t going to put Alaskans to work this summer, but this decision indicates that the courts are going to uphold the law and operators can expect to be treated fairly or be able to seek recourse. We hope this sends a clear message to federal agencies to grant the permits that Shell will need to drill in the Outer Continental Shelf in 2011.”
