Members of my family live in New York’s 18th Congressional District. Previously, I have criticized the former representative from this district, Republican Nan Hayworth. Today I want to strongly criticize the Democrat who beat her, Sean Patrick Maloney. Recently, he voted in support of building the last section of the Keystone Pipeline – a terrible vote in my opinion.
The Vermont Senate has delayed action on a bill toughening environmental reviews over possible changes in the use of a crude oil pipeline after the state's leading business law firm sent a letter outlining potential legal problems if the bill were to become law.
