The passage of the historic tax reform — with the keys to ANWR’s oil and gas sector — was met with silence from Alaska Democrats, inclusive of state senators, representatives and party leaders.
The published statement from Gov. Bill Walker was, at best, “meh.”
Walker wrote in a press release last week: “Moving forward, we will continue to dialogue with all Alaskans, and ensure that any potential development in the 1002 Area takes into consideration Alaskan concerns previously expressed.”
Not a ringing endorsement — but a nod to his Democratic base. What does Walker mean by “takes into consideration Alaskan concerns previously expressed?”
He’s referring to those Democrats not done with the #Resistance. He is speaking to the party of Senators Maria Cantwell and Elizabeth Warren.
The Left is gearing up and going after the brand reputation of any oil company that dares to bid on leases in the 1002 Area of ANWR, as seen in this warning:
KUAC Radio, out of Fairbanks, says the fight isn’t over. In this report, it quotes environmental groups as saying they will fight on to prevent oil exploration in the 1002 area of ANWR.
