Young introduces legislation to stop lease moratoriums unless approved

    Congressman Don Young

    WASHINGTON (KINY) - Alaska Congressman, Don Young, announced on Tuesday his new bill--the America Needs Worthwhile Resources Act, or the ANWR Act.

    He introduced this act in response to President Biden's moratorium on oil and gas leasing on federal lands. The ANWR Act would prohibit presidents, including President Biden, from issuing moratoriums without approval from Congress.

    One of the federal lands Young mentioned is the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge in Northern Alaska.
