Note from Rep. Gara: 2nd Annual Holiday Laptops for Foster Youth Drive – Improving One Life At A Time

This week we are launching our second annual "Laptops for Foster Youth Drive". Since last year we have matched over 60 youth with good, late model used and new laptops. Youth have used these laptops for school, to transport pictures of their families and friends, and to lead a life that more closely resembles those of their peers outside of foster care. If you have a quality used, or new laptop you’d like to donate, please let us know, and we’ll help you make someone’s life better! The criteria for the laptops we are looking for is at the end of the e-mail. If you want to donate funds to purchase one or more laptops, we can help arrange that too.

Note from Rep. Gara: Hurdle Cleared: Oil Development in National Petroleum Reserve Moving Forward

Who knows what impact public comment ever has? You hope it matters, so you comment. That’s why this spring I and others wrote an array of federal officials to say that ConocoPhillips' proposed development in the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska (NPR-A) was in Alaska's and the nation's interests. When the US Army Corps of Engineers effectively blocked oil development there by denying a needed bridge permit, I was concerned. I spoke to my colleagues about writing a letter explaining that production was falling on the North Slope, and access to this area, reserved for oil development, was crucial to our efforts to stem and hopefully reverse the decline in North Slope oil production.

Berta’s Briefings from Rep. Gardner: Good News for Expanded North Slope Oil Development

Dear Friends and Neighbors, The new agreement between ConocoPhillips and the federal government will encourage new North Slope development and the sharing of facilities. This will eventually put more oil in the Pipeline. I just wanted to let you know about an important new development that should help promote new oil production on the North Slope.            Two federal resource agencies, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), just reached an agreement in principle with ConocoPhillips regarding the company’s proposed Alpine Satellite Development Plan (CD-5) in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A).
