Internal emails show Biden officials openly disagreed with admin’s fossil fuel policies

“The Mineral Leasing Act is clear: the Interior Secretary must hold at least quarterly lease sales in every state where there is interest, as reflected by nominations,” Kathleen Sgamma, the president of the Western Energy Alliance, said in a statement in December 2022.

“Oil and natural gas companies have nominated millions of acres in Wyoming and across the West that have yet to be offered for sale. Not only has this administration held only one set of lease sales in its first two years, but has now signaled that there will be no sales until second quarter 2023, a full year later,” she continued. “Once a year does not equal ‘quarterly.'”
