    Of course, on a strict party-line basis this will sail through the House.

    But do you think that there will be sufficient members from affected areas who will vote against against this measure?

    I trust that Senator Boxer will not even allow S. 1087 out of her committee, so I'm not especially worried about these things becoming law, but we do need to follow them closely and keep pressure on the Senate to do the right thing for our precious lands.
