Sullivan Responds to Obama Administration’s ANWR Comprehensive Conservation Plan, Formal Request to Congress

ANCHORAGE, AK – Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK) today released the following statement in response to the Obama Administration’s revised Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) to manage the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) as wilderness, and a formal request to Congress to approve the wilderness designation.

“This outrageous proposal from the Obama Administration will undermine Alaska’s future and America’s energy security.  It will never see the light of day in Congress,” said Sen. Sullivan.  “President Obama’s goal of starving the Trans-Alaska Pipeline of oil and turning our state into a giant national park will not stand.  I will continue to work closely with Senator Murkowski, Congressman Young, Governor Walker and members of the Alaska Legislature in defending our fellow Alaskans against this assault on our families and our future.”
