Arctic offshore drilling should get OK, say Alaska Sens. Murkowski, Begich, Rep. Young

Alaska's pro-offshore drilling congressional delegation is optimistic that federal regulators will give Shell Oil a green light to explore in waters off the North Slope this summer. Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich and Congressman Don Young did speak at some length about Shell's project, which they all favor. They emphasized that offshore and onshore drilling in the United States is necessary, despite the anxiety created by the big Gulf oil leak.
