And ANWR has nothing to do with the topic, if you want to drill for oil there get the senate to approve it.
It has everything to do with it. Yes, most of the land in the graphic is worthless, but ANWR drilling (and other mining, forestry, etc.) needs congressional approval because it's federal land. North Dakota is enjoying an oil boom because the oil is reachable on state or private land. It's a good thing no one around here is an advocate of excessive federal land ownership, such as yourself.
Excessive my ass, close down all the jobs people have related to the sports and tourist business these land provide. Along with the taxes paid and you make up the difference. And anwr has nothing to do with the topic it has already pass into protected status, get a two thirds vote to reverse that. Never going to happen.
