Cheney invited to testify about politicizing Interior Dept.

The House Natural Resources Committee has invited Vice President Dick Cheney to a hearing examining his “role in influencing scientific and policy decisions at the Department of the Interior.” The hearing will focus on “Cheney’s intervention in the development of a 10-year water plan for the Klamath River,” revealed in a recent Washington Post series, which resulted in the “collapse of the West Coast salmon-fishing industry.”
