WASHINGTON, D.C., August 17, 2020 -

Today, Ranking Republican Rob Bishop (R-Utah) released the following statement on the Record of Decision signed by Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt approving the Coastal Plain Oil and Gas Leasing Program in the 1002 Area of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

I thank Secretary Bernhardt and many others at the Department of the Interior for their tireless efforts to move this vision another step closer to reality.”
