Bass (NH-02) issued the following statement this evening after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3408, the Protecting Investment in Oil Shale, the Next Generation of Environmental, Energy, and Resource Security (PIONEERS) Act.

Bass said:

"While I support finding solutions to increase our domestic energy supply and achieve energy security in our nation, opening protected, unique, and pristine environmental areas like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is the wrong way to do it. I support domestic energy production as well as the development of alternative sources of energy, but it should be done in a safe, environmentally-responsible manner. As I've said before, opening ANWR to drilling as a means to pay for the transportation bill is neither reasonable nor realistic."rt finding solutions to increase our domestic energy supply and achieve energy security in our nation, opening protected, unique, and pristine environmental areas like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is the wrong way to do it.
