Congress Wastes Time And Money On Eco-Extremist Legislation That Is DOA In Senate

September 11, 2019

Washington, D.C. is back to its normal cadence, as Congress has returned from its August recess.

One of the primary pieces of legislation being pushed by the House is H.R.1146, designed to shut down drilling in Alaska’s 1002 Area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

The House Democrats, along with extremist non-profits – led by the National Resources Defense Council – have led efforts to reverse the advancements made toward ANWR development under President Trump.

As they bring H.R.1146 to the floor this week, in what will be a made-for-TV experience, with every eco-bought Congressman sure to spend their allotted time posturing for the camera, money will be spent to perpetuate a false narrative; that drilling will equal devastation to the Arctic Plain, its wildlife and the Alaska Native cultures surrounding ANWR.

Fortunately for America and its drive for energy independence and dominance, H.R.1146 is guaranteed to die once it hits the US Senate. Mitch McConnell and his majority have said as much, with Alaska’s Senators Murkowski and Sullivan leading the fight against the abominable legislation.

Here’s hoping that the bluster and bravado expressed by extremist House members this week runs its media life quickly, and that the House can get back to improving Americans’ lives, hopes and future, completing tasks that truly matter, rather than appeasing their eco-extremist campaign funding sources with actions that would do irreparable harm to Alaska if it somehow made its way through the legislative process and was signed by a less-responsible executive than President Trump is.
