Lisa Murkowski is a third-generation Alaskan proudly serving as the first Alaska-born U.S. Senator. In the current Congress, Murkowski is a senior member of the panels on Appropriations; Energy and Natural Resources; Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions; and Vice Chairman of the Indian Affairs Committee. A Republican leader on energy, mineral, and climate policy, Murkowski was named the single-most effective Senator on these issues in the most recent Congress. Among her accomplishments as Chairman of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee (2015-2020) were the lifting of the export ban on U.S. crude oil, the opening of the non-wilderness 1002 Area in Alaska to responsible development, and the first modernization of U.S. energy laws to promote innovation, efficiency, and clean energy deployment in well over a decade. Last year, Murkowski played a key role in drafting the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, an historic law that will invest more than $70 billion into energy and climate-related priorities. Murkowski is a strong proponent of domestic energy and mineral production, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, regulatory and permitting reforms, and the strategic use of American resources as a geopolitical and competitive asset.
