ABSTRACT
The article informs that advocates and foes of opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska to oil and gas exploration have turned their attention to the House, after the Senate approved a measure to allow such drilling in part of the Alaska tract. Spurred by Gulf Coast hurricane recovery needs, House and Senate appropriators have boosted Corps of Engineers construction funds for fiscal year 2006. A November 7 conference agreement provides $2.37 billion for the 2006 Corps construction account, up 6% from 2005's total, which included $545 million in emergency funds.
