Trump suffers setbacks in environmental rulings in Alaska


ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Trump administration has suffered a pair of setbacks in attempting to reverse environmental policies set for Alaska by former President Barack Obama.

U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason on Friday said the Trump administration violated federal law with a proposed road through a national wildlife refuge.

Hours later, Gleason ruled that Trump exceeded his authority when he reversed a ban on offshore drilling in most of the Arctic Ocean and parts of the Atlantic.

Earthjustice attorney Erik Grafe (GRAF-ee), who worked on the drilling case, says President Trump’s illegal actions are catching up to him.

Alaska U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a Republican, says the drilling decision could have catastrophic impacts for offshore well development, which creates jobs, generates revenue and strengthens national security.
