Fifteen states suing Trump over ANWR drilling go-ahead

Fifteen states are suing the Trump administration over its plan for opening up nearly 1.6 million acres of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska to oil and gas development. 

“This plan was rushed, it’s incredibly flawed, there were more than 1 million public comments against it, it fails to fully evaluate and consider the devastating environmental impacts of opening up the coastal plain and it will corrupt one of our nation’s most pristine and uniquely important habitats,” Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey (D) told reporters.
