POLITICO Q&A: Senate Energy Chair Lisa Murkowski

By Anthony Adragna

Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski was quoted in an article published June 15, 2020 that she anticipates a lease sale this summer. Article extract and link below.

Have you gotten any further guidance from the administration on the status of the ANWR lease sale? And do you think that is something that’s likely to be done before the end of the year?

I do, I do. I think they’re getting close to moving to being able to announce that. In terms of specific timing, I don’t have that information but they had been saying all along that they anticipated it was likely going to be this summer. And so everything that I have received in our conversation leads me to believe that we’re still on track.
