ANWR Open:

By a vote of 48-51 the Senate blocked Sen. Maria Cantwell??¢â???¬â???¢s (D.-Wash.) amendment to the budget reconciliation bill prohibiting drilling in Alaska??¢â???¬â???¢s Artic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) last week. Then, in another Sen. Ron Wyden (D.-Ore.) and Sen. Jim Talent??¢â???¬â???¢s (R.-Mo.) bi-partisan amendment to prevent ANWR oil and gas from being exported was passed 83-16. Meanwhile, in the House, ANWR drilling remains a major obstacle in moving forward on deficits cuts and is being negotiated with food stamps and student loans by moderate Republicans.
