|United States Senate Takes on Issue of Alaskan Legacy Wells|
Alaska State Representative Charisse Millett (R-Anchorage) and Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commissioner Cathy Foerster testified in front of the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee this morning. They testified against the federal government’s constant refusal to properly clean, plug, and abandon oil wells under federal jurisdiction.
Chairman Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) called the full committee hearing today at the urging of Ranking Member Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). Senator Murkowski has been a strong advocate for the full remediation of these wells, and has addressed the issue with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, as well as with Bureau of Land Management Director Bob Abbey.
