No drilling of oil in ANWR
House GOP leaders agreed last night to strip plans to permit oil drilling in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and in the offshore continental shelf from a $54 billion budget-cutting measure, probably securing the votes to pass the bill today.Good cut...the oil companies didn't want it anyway, because it didn't make business sense and some of the Republicans realized that it was pissing people off. Why get so much bad press for something that wasn't going to get you corporate money? Duh.
