Alaska lawmakers are asking the governor to push for oil and gas development in the state.

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska lawmakers are asking the governor to push for oil and gas development in the state.

The state Legislature has passed a resolution urging the governor and attorney general to work on opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, as well as the Beaufort and Chukchi seas, for oil and gas development.

The House agreed to the newest version of that resolution Wednesday.

The resolution also asks the state administration to work against a wilderness designation in the refuge.

President Barack Obama announced in January that he wanted such a designation made, and Alaska lawmakers have stated their opposition.
