    Republicans Say "America Must Have More American-Made Energy" - By office of House Committee on Resources
    Many American labor organizations, such as the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the International Union of Operating Engineers, the Laborers International Union of North America, the AFL-CIO -- Building Trades Department, the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters, the Seafarers International Union and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America have joined us in support safe energy development in ANWR because they know the answer. Investing at home will create hundreds of thousands of good jobs and help lower prices for their working families at the same time. And with 21 st century technologies, they know it can de done in an environmentally-sensitive, wildlife-friendly fashion. Thirty years of energy development in Prudhoe Bay, just seventy miles to the west of ANWR on Alaska's coastal plain, have proven this to be true.
