"Murkowski's Mischief" January 28, 2010 : 6:03 PM

The New York Times editorial page last week wrote:

“Senator Lisa Murkowski’s home state of Alaska is ever so slowly melting away, courtesy of a warming planet. Yet few elected officials seem more determined than she to throw sand in the Obama administration’s efforts to do something about climate change.”

“As part of an agreement that allowed the Senate to get out of town before Christmas, Democratic leaders gave Ms. Murkowski and several other Republicans the chance to offer amendments to a must-pass bill lifting the debt ceiling. Voting on that bill begins this week. Although she has not showed her hand, Ms. Murkowski has been considering various proposals related to climate change — all mischievous.”

We need to stop Lisa Murkowski’s attempt to gut the Clean Air Act cold in its tracks. That is why, if you haven’t already, I urge you to write your Senator today.
