ANWR Drilling Expected to Pass TODAY

Senate Seen Backing Oil Search in Alaska Refuge

Reuters

WASHINGTON - As U.S. crude oil prices soared to a record high on Wednesday, the Senate was expected to vote to open Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil drilling.

The ANWR drilling plan is a key aspect of the Bush administration's national energy plan, but has been blocked in recent years by a Senate coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats.

Republican Pete Domenici, chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said drilling supporters have enough votes to defeat an effort by Democrats to strike ANWR drilling language from budget legislation.

A vote was expected in early afternoon...

Time for the wacko environmentalists to bust out the tissue paper. Looks like we've won the debate after all.

UPDATE:

ANWR DRILLING PASSES!

WASHINGTON - Amid the backdrop of soaring oil and gasoline prices, a sharply divided Senate on Wednesday voted to open the ecologically rich Alaska wildlife refuge to oil drilling, delivering a major energy policy win for President Bush (news - web sites).

The Senate, by a 51-49 vote, rejected an attempt by Democrats and GOP moderates to remove a refuge drilling provision from next year's budget, preventing opponents from using a filibuster — a tactic that has blocked repeated past attempts to open the Alaska refuge to oil companies.
