+ Johnson Comments on DOI Lifting Oil Drilling Moratorium (Anchorage) -

House Resources Committee Co-Chair Craig Johnson, R-Anchorage, released the following statement today in response to U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's decision to lift the deepwater drilling moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Thanks for helping Louisiana, now what about Alaska? Interior's move today was silent on Alaska on our shallow water drilling opportunities and other potential OCS plays. No word on Shell's proposed amended plan for Chukchi development, or lease sales in the Chukchi or Beaufort seas moving forward. For Alaska, there is only continued silence and disappointment."

+ Rep. Millett Disappointed by Interior Dept's Decision on OCS Drilling (Anchorage) -

Today's decision by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to only lift the moratorium on deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico was greeted with disappointment by Rep. Charisse Millett, R-Anchorage. "Shell is ready and waiting to begin responsible oil exploration in the Beaufort Sea in 2011," said Rep. Millett. "While I'm glad to see deepwater offshore drilling will resume in the Gulf of Mexico, Secretary Salazar's decision ignored one of the most promising regions for a major oil discovery in the country and it sits in just a few hundred feet of water. A lot of Alaskans will have to wait for the good paying jobs that come with offshore drilling while the federal government sits on Shell's proposed development plan."
