- "Arctic drilling dropped from House bill. It could still return when, if Senate and House negotiate budget," Associated Press (MSNBC), November 10, 2005: "The actions were a stunning setback for those who have tried for years to open a coastal strip of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or ANWR, to oil development, and a victory for environmentalists, who have lobbied hard against the drilling provisions. President Bush has made drilling in the Alaska refuge his top energy priorities."

Senators Hurry to Quell Furor Over Gas," New York Times, April 28, 2006. re the "escalating political battle over high gasoline prices", Republicans want to open ANWR to "oil production" and Democrats "quickly dismissed the new Republican approach as a backdoor effort to overcome deep-seated opposition to drilling in the Arctic refuge."
