    And key western GOP senators have taken public stands against it.  Domenici (NM), Allard (CO) (who feels Mark Udall breathing down his neck), and Thomas (WY).  All have been deluged with opposition from hunting and fishing groups.

    Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM) penned a letter signed by 8 other Rep. House members, too.  Wilson & Domenici were in the late Friday afternoon news cycle, and I presume they're working together on this.  (She being the presumptive heir to his Senate seat, and his political protegé).  I've diaried on this:

    On Allard, and on Wilson/Domenici (rather than reiterate here).

    No word on the conference yet.  I'm on a mining e-mail list that's von top of this issue.  It's pretty rare I find something before it makes that list (Domenici's stand being one of the rare exceptions).   And being a key player as Chairman of Senate Energy & Resources.  I assume I'll hear fast once the conference is announced.  Another good source tracking this is on the legislative end is National Environmental Trust.
