Senator Collins recently voted the right way in the budget fight on one of the biggest environmental issues of recent decades—the fight over whether to open Alaska’s Arctic Refuge to oil drilling.
Unfortunately, the fight is not over. The fate of the arctic is now tied to the fate of the tax plan. The Senate tax bill would mandate oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, one of our most iconic and spectacular outdoor areas.
The Arctic Refuge is a national treasure and asset, and we have a moral obligation to preserve this pristine place for future generations.
