Duncan: By opening a small area of ANWR, we CAN protect wildlife and secure America’s energy future at the same time.

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 28, 2012 - House Natural Resources Committee Republicans are committed to putting Americans back to work by enacting policies that embrace America’s abundant natural resources to help create jobs and grow our economy.

Meet Freshman Committee Member Jeff Duncan from South Carolina’s Third Congressional District. Congressman Duncan suggests that by opening up a small portion of ANWR, we have huge potential for achieving American energy independence, while creating good-paying American jobs. Responsible energy production would create thousands of jobs, generate billions in new revenue, and reduce our dependence on Middle Eastern oil. Watch Rep. Duncan explain more here:
