The article reports on the approval of a legislation that would allow oil drilling at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska by the U.S. House of Representatives on May 25, 2006. House Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo asserts on the lack of logical reason to oppose the drilling. Republican representatives removed the ANWR drilling provision in the fiscal 2006 budget reconciliation bill. The Senate has included a drilling provision in the fiscal 2007 budget resolution.
