Pro-ANWR radio ads to air
Facebook Twitter Email

The Teamsters Union is planning on airing radio advertisements praising members of Congress who voted to support drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The ads will air in response to a recent campaign by environmentalists. The environmentalists ran ads praising members of Congress who voted against drilling and criticizing those who did.

The House has passed a bill to allow oil drilling on 2,000 acres in the refuge. The Senate has yet to consider the proposal.

A Reuters poll of members of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee found that drilling would clear by the panel if Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) supports it.
