  The Castle Amendment --
We appreciate Congressman Castle's support defending local control of LNG plant siting. Can't wait to find out how others in the region voted so we can "hammer" them for voting to usurp state sovereignty.

Federal energy bill passes House (again)
Monday, April 25, 2005 -- Atmore Advance, AL
My staff and I work for the people of south Alabama. Let us know when we can be of service. Jo Bonner is a congressman for the State of Alabama. His column appears weekly. The Castle Amendment would have ensured that local input continues to receive fair consideration during the permitting process, and that decisions are not made solely on the basis of information provided by the federal government. While the amendment did not pass, and was thus not included in the final version of the bill, I was proud to cast my vote in support of Congressman Castle's measure. Moreover, I have been assured by members of the House leadership that further consideration of local input in an LNG permitting process will be given additional review during any House-Senate conference negotiations on this bill.


DeLay's Grab for NASA
Sunday, April 09 , 2005 -- globalsecurity.org
Who's in charge of the US space program? There's the administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, for one, and of course the President--and also Tom DeLay. The scandal-scented Republican House majority leader has invaded NASA, grabbing its biggest outpost and taking a rather personal interest in the agency's budget. He has established himself as the go-to guy on Capitol Hill regarding NASA. And given the way Washington works, this means he can influence how the agency carves up its $16 billion pie and how it resolves critical policy debates--matters of keen interest to aerospace and military contractors, who often look to make contributions to friendly or feared legislators. One of the largest employers in Texas, the center boasts about 15,000 workers. Until last year the JSC was miles outside DeLay's Congressional district. When he and other Texas Republicans orchestrated a controversial redrawing of district lines in 2003, they wiped out the district next to DeLay's, a Democratic stronghold that included the JSC. At the same time, an elbow-shaped piece of territory was added to the east side of DeLay's district. This patch stretched far enough to wrap around the Johnson Space Center.
