    FreedomWorks Key Votes Yes on H.R. 5429 (ANWR)

    Dear Representative:

    On behalf of more than 800,000 FreedomWorks members nationwide, I write to urge you to VOTE YES on HR 5429 (ANWR). Developing domestic oil reserves such as ANWR is a critical step in the long term strategy reducing American dependence on foreign sources of energy. With prices hitting $3 at the pump, America can ill afford to turn its back on potential energy sources, especially those within the United States.

    The resources of ANWR will help our nation meet its future energy needs at the same time providing thousands of new jobs, billions in additional tax revenues, and help to stabilize prices at the pump. Modern extraction process have a minimal impact on the environment, and only 2,000 of the nearly 20 million acres will be open to oil and gas production. What’s more, the people of Alaska overwhelmingly support energy development in their state.

    FreedomWorks will count your YES vote on HR 5429 (ANWR) as a KEY VOTE when calculating the FreedomWorks Economic Scorecard. The FreedomWorks Economic Scorecard is used to determine eligibility for the Jefferson Award, which recognizes Representatives with voting records that support economic freedom.

    Sincerely,

    Matt Kibbe
    President and CEO
