Governor Parnell Releases Statement on President’s Weekly Address


May 14, 2011, Juneau, Alaska – Governor Sean Parnell released the following statement on President Barack Obama’s weekly radio address on domestic oil production:

“I commend the president for acknowledging Alaska's vast resource potential. The president’s proposal to conduct annual lease sales in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska and commitment to streamline the permitting process is a positive first step. For too long, federal agencies have focused on shutting down resource development in Alaska. The president must now ensure these agencies recognize the importance of responsible resource development - critical to our nation’s energy security.”
