Two of Mr. Biden’s farm-state allies are also being discussed for the job: Heidi Heitkamp, a former senator from North Dakota, and Tom Vilsack, the former Iowa governor who served as agriculture secretary for President Barack Obama. The sprawling agency oversees farm policy, the Forest Service, food safety and animal health, but also the food stamp program, nutrition services, rural housing and rural development. More broadly, the debate illustrates the challenge Mr. Biden faces as he builds his administration. Every appointment he makes interlocks with others, and if he does not select a diverse candidate for one position it becomes more likely he will for other posts. And nowhere did Mr. Biden fare worse than in rural America, particularly the most heavily white parts of the farm belt.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump’s last-minute push to allow drilling in a pristine part of Alaska’s Arctic will be an early target for the next administration, according to Senator Tom Udall, a contender to lead the Interior Department under Joe Biden. That puts the administration on a timeline that could bring a lease auction by mid-January, only days before Biden takes office. A top issue for the next Interior secretary will be implementing Biden’s pledge to ban new oil and gas leasing on federal lands. The state's Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham - a co-chair of the Biden transition team, told Reuters last year she would request a waiver exempting the state from a potential drilling ban here. As part of that plan, the nation's leasing program would be included in a "top-to-bottom review of public lands," Udall said.

Nearly half the oil and gas pipeline miles that crisscross the United States are at least 50 years old. If existing pipelines are shut, suppliers could be forced to transport fuel and gas to consumers by rail or road. Enbridge estimates the project, due to be completed in 2024, will cost $500 million, said Ryan Duffy, Enbridge spokesman. Keystone, which moves Canadian crude to the Midwest, has twice leaked thousands of barrels, even though it is about 10 years old.
