Keep your Senator off this letter (Yawn)

Chris C Mooney (crusader against the anti-science orcs) quotes an article in The Hill describing the response of utility lobbyists to Russ Feingold's call for scientific guidance in redrafting mercury-emissions regulations.

The Wisconsin Democrat [Russ Feingold] is asking colleagues to sign a letter urging President Bush to allow science to guide development of new mercury-emissions regulations. The utility trade group doesn't want them to.

"The letter seeks reassurance from President Bush that mercury science will not be politicized," wrote Edison Electric Institute lobbyist Ed Yawn in an e-mail to utility lobbyists Tuesday. "Please try to keep your Senator off this letter."
