Arctic National Wildlife Reserve
Do you care about drilling for oil in ANWR one way or the other? You probably just want low gasoline prices and the Caribou be damned. Well ANWR did not make it in the energy bill but it is in the 2006 budget reconciliation bill that will be considered this Fall. If the budget bill is passed with the ANWR provision, there will be drilling. Remember that the ANWR provision was put in the budget resolution to avoid a filibuster in the Senate via regular Senate deliberations (Senate rules do not allow filibusters in the budget resolution process). Speak up.
