Oil and Gas Drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) Witnesses testified at a hearing on oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), specifically the coastal plain section of the refuge. The first panel comprised Alaska elected officials Senator Dan Sullivan (R), Representative Don Young (R), and Governor Bill Walker (I). All agreed that opening up the Arctic refuge to oil drilling would benefit the economy and enhance energy security. The second panel included Interior Department officials and Alaskan native tribe members. Samuel Alexander, a member of the Gwich’in Nation, said oil development would threaten the ANWR’s coastal plain and destroy his people’s way of life. Panel three included testimony from environmental experts, biologists, and representatives from the Alaska Native Regional Corporations. They assessed the potential economic benefits and environmental effects of oil development in the Arctic refuge. close
