Alaska governor: Biden hurting US economy by canceling mining in state
Gov. Mike Dunleavy, R-Alaska, on suing the CDC over its cruise ban and the Biden administration not letting his state mine for rare earths and minerals.
EXCLUSIVE: Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy says President Biden’s decision to suspend oil and gas leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge doesn’t make sense and will only weaken America.
The Biden administration's decision to unilaterally suspend the leases, pending an environmental review, reversed a law passed by Congress in 2017 that permitted drilling in the wildlife refuge. Former President Trump in the final days of his administration auctioned off 11 oil leases in the region.
"It's an all-out effort to stop what Alaska was purchased for by William Seward," Dunleavy, a Republican, told FOX Business. "We're in the process right now of exploring all of our options."
