Top Dogs

Pete Domenici and Lincoln Chafee
Pete Domenici and Lincoln Chafee

Look for dogfights over energy now that Domenici is chair of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. The New Mexico senator makes no bones about his pro-nuke, pro-oil agenda and has started 2003 by pushing for both drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the renewal of the Price-Anderson Act, which is essentially taxpayer-funded insurance for the nuclear industry in case of catastrophic accident. But fortunately, in another key Senate committee -- Environment and Public Works -- environmental watchdog Lincoln Chafee holds the swing vote. The League of Conservation Voters currently rates him among the greenest Republicans in the Senate.
