The Trump administration continues to push forward with plans to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee gave those plans a boost Tuesday, voting to confirm a drilling advocate as Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Land and Minerals Management. Over the course of his career, former Alaskaofficial Joe Balash has been strongly in favor of developing Alaskas natural gas and oil resources and in favor of transferring public lands to Alaska control so the state could offer oil and gas leases. He has testified to Congress that the Arctic Refuge should be open to oil drilling, and in 2014 he wrote to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to say that 20,000 acres of the refuge should rightfully be under Alaskan control.
