Murkowski’s Big Oil resolution defeated 47 – 53

Senate just voted down Senator Lisa Murkowski’s anti-environmental resolution to gut the authority of the EPA.

I’ll post the roll call vote when it’s posted. It’s here. Blanche Lincoln did vote with Big Oil and the GOP. Josh Nelson provided the list of the six Dems. who voted Yes: Mark Pryor, Evan Bayh, Ben Nelson, Jay Rockefeller, Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu.

These Republicans are shameless. Even with oil gushing into the gulf of Mexico, the GOPers were unabashed about trying to weaken our environmental regulations.
