House hearing on Native American comanagement veers into partisan fight over gas prices

A congressional hearing Tuesday into how best federal land-management agencies could tap Native American expertise for natural resource issues opened the door for Republicans to push for more oil and gas drilling and development of a national energy policy in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.


U.S. Rep. Garrett Graves, R-Louisiana, slammed U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, chair of the House Natural Resources Committee, for holding the hearing at a time when oil and gasoline prices were soaring, inflation was undercutting Americans' buying power for energy costs, and the Biden administration was calling for a ban on Russian oil imports.
