Biden to cancel ANWR drilling leases issued in last days of Trump administration

The Biden administration on Tuesday will suspend oil drilling leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge that were issued in the waning days of the Trump administration, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland will publish a secretarial order formally rescinding the leases, according to the people, who were not authorized to speak about the matter because it had not yet been publicly announced.
