Alaskan Senators invited to speak

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, thanked the president for his assistance in passing the tax bill.

“With passage of this tax bill, with passage– finally– to allow us to open the 10-02 area, this is a bright day,” she said, referencing the provision of the bill opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to drilling.

“This, Mr. President, is what energy dominance is all about,” she said.
