Trump administration launches process to lease ANWR for drilling

"The Interior Department is launching the regulatory process that will guide eventual lease sales to oil companies that want to drill in the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The process will begin with an environmental review, outlined in a notice scheduled to be published Friday in the Federal Register. Congress approved potential drilling in a portion of the refuge as part of 2017 tax law, and ordered the department to hold at least two lease sales there by the end of 2024."
