Press Release
September 6, 2023

In response to the Biden Administration's recent announcement that it would cancel oil and gas leases in Alaska, Christopher Guith, Senior Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Global Energy Institute, released the following statement:

“As OPEC+ nations continue to cut oil and gas production, the last thing the United States needs is more areas off limits to produce domestic energy. Congress directed that ANWR be available for production in 2016, and the Biden Administration should comply with the law and be taking steps to improve energy security, not weaken it.”
