Chairman Hastings Speaks with KTVF Fairbanks About Recent Alaska Energy Tour
Posted by Crystal Feldman on June 15, 2011
Last week, Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings traveled to Alaska to tour the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A), the Trans Alaskan Pipeline System (TAPS) and the Native village of Kaktovik with Alaska Governor Sean Parnell and Representative Don Young (AK-at large).

Following his trip to Alaska, Chairman Hastings introduced H.R. 2150, the National Petroleum Reserve Alaska Access Act. Part of the American Energy Initiative, H.R. 2150 would cut through bureaucratic red tape and unlock the full potential of energy resources in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A) to create American jobs, lower fuel costs and increase our energy independence.

Fairbanks’ KTVF NBC-11 News caught up with Chairman Hastings in the Fairbanks airport to talk about his Alaska energy tour and his NPR-A bill:
