Out-cue: atmosphere is increasing]
TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Environmentalists and tribes say they want to make sure the offshore and coastal development is done right.
VERBATIM: The live, online auction for the five leases has attracted strong interest – 43 companies from around the world.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over his handling of the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that GOP lawmakers will consider impeachment next year if he does not step down. More on this from Congressional Correspondent Bernie Bennett.
McCarthy said at a press conference in El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday, “If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate, every order, every action and every failure will determine whether we can begin impeachment inquiry.”
McCarthy cited the Department of Homeland Security head’s statements to Congress that the border is under control, record border crossing numbers and his ending of the “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy instituted during the Trump administration as reasons for resignation.
McCarthy was nominated by House Republicans to serve as Speaker in the next Congress last week during a closed-door vote.

San Francisco unveils a controversial program
VERBATIM: It’s called the “Guaranteed Income for Transgender People” initiative and it will provide a monthly payment of 1200 dollars to poor people who are transgender. The application just came out and it has prompted some raised eyebrows. The document offers over 130 gender and sexual orientation options, encouraging applicants to “check all that apply.” Critics say if the city wants to make payments to low income residents, it should do so without favoring transgender people.
