Mark Kennedy on Energy & Oil

Republican Representative (MN-6)

Opposes drilling ANWR despite voting for it

We were taken advantage of, by the House leadership putting ANWR into an important bill about funding out troops in time of war. Putting ANWR into a defense spending bill was a cheap trick. I wish we could have had a clean up-or-down vote on ANWR. If it were stripped out, I'd have voted against it.
