HJR 28 expresses Alaska's view that nothing should be done to restrict exploration, development and production on the Outer Continental Shelf in Alaska and throughout the country.

"Fuel prices are at an all time high throughout our nation and we are in very uncertain economic times," Johnson said. "As a country we shouldn't do anything to restrict our ability to find domestic energy sources and create jobs in America."

Copies of HJR 28 will be sent to President Obama, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chair Senator Jeff Bingaman, and members of the Alaska Congressional delegation.
