Protect Alaska's Sovereignty and Opportunities Inherent in our Land and Resources

Declarations by the Obama Administration jeopardized Alaska's ability to provide economic opportunity and essential state services to future generations. Our members have spoken out forcefully for Alaska's right to responsibly manage and develop our lands and resources.

After years of fighting the Obama Administration's persistent attempts to lockup Alaska land and resources, the Senate Majority is seeking to engage in a cooperative dialog with the current Administration.
