In October, our nation reached a little noticed but significant milestone: America’s production of oil in America by Americans exceeded imports for the first time in nearly 20 years.

Long America’s energy storehouse, Alaska should be leading our nation’s domestic energy renaissance. Unfortunately, today we’re not.
We have the resources; what’s needed is the right mix of state and federal policies to deliver them to market.
