The goal is for coal and to get the oil

It purports to "open up" land in Alaska for oil exploration. But the land in question is NPR-A, not ANWR:

the Dems' cobbled-together statute won't generate a single barrel of new oil production.
It contains a series of provisions that add nothing to existing law or existing energy production capabilities.
The "Drill" Act would re-enact the "use it or lose it" concept that is already the law, i.e., energy leases that are not exploited within a given period of time expire.
It purports to "open up" land in Alaska for oil exploration. But the land in question is NPR-A, not ANWR:

NPR-A is already open to oil exploration and development. That isn't happening, though, because the Corps of Engineers hasn't been able to get a permit to build a pipeline, and the Sierra Club and other environmental organizations have tied up proposed projects in litigation.
Moreover, NPR-A is a less desirable area for exploitation than ANWR. It has about the same amount of recoverable oil, but spread out over ten times the area as ANWR's 1002.
Both environmentally and economically, ANWR is a far superior place to recover oil, and it is close to the existing Alaska Pipeline. You can read about ANWR and NPR-A here.

Even the name creates a false impression.. that they want to drill for oil.... "Drill Responsibly on Leased Land" act
