ABSTRACT
The article reports on the possible deletion of a provision allowing exploratory drilling for oil and natural gas in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) from the budget reconciliation bill by the Republican leaders in the U.S. Congress. Their aim is to move the ANWR language into the fiscal 2006 Defense appropriations bill. Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), a supporter of ANWR drilling, had been relying on using the procedural protections afforded by the reconciliation process.
