New plan floated for expanding offshore oil and gas leasing

The Interior Department has proposed a new plan for expanded off-shore oil and gas leasing – including in Alaska’s waters.  Even though the Bush Administration has only days left in power, officials claim the new plan will give the incoming Obama Administration “more options” to consider.  The Interior’s Mineral Management Services bureau is preparing a new five year program to run from 2010 to 2015.
