Trump Administration Postpones ANWR Meetings As Lisa Murkowski Calls For Shutdown To End

The Trump administration postponed eight public meetings scheduled over plans to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil and gas drilling.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) did not say why the meetings were postponed, and the agency did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

Meetings slated to take place in Anchorage, Arctic Village, Fairbanks, Fort Yukon, Kaktovik, Utqiaġvik, Venetie and Washington, D.C., will be rescheduled for a later date, BLM said in a Wednesday press release. BLM is legally required to hold public meetings.

BLM held public meetings over drilling permits in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, despite the ongoing government shutdown. A BLM spokesman told Reuters the meetings were exempted from the shutdown.

“The Bureau continues to process permit applications as they are an exempted activity during a lapse in appropriations,” the spokesman said.

I hope this is an intentional "sot across the bow". Why play nice with Rino's.

The story suggests these meetings are cancelled because of Murkowski, but I see no proof of that, other than a misleading headline on DC.
I will NOT comply.

I'm not sure what a "sot across the bow" is, but it sounds like an Irish joke.    :silly:

See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.
