Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said September 20 that she will soon propose to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction that clean energy development is paid for with revenue from increased domestic oil and gas production. The senator’s plan is similar to legislation she has already proposed (S. 351 and S. 352), which would open Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil and gas exploration and production while dedicating a portion of the revenue for alternative energy projects.
