Please everyone call their senators and ask them to KEEP the non funding language in the Omnibus Appropriations Bill.

Senate just passed the omnibus bill and sent it on to the President. I'm double-checking, but I'm pretty sure that means Inhofe didn't get his amendment attached.

Remains to be seen if he introduces the standalone.

Crossing fingers that the amendment was not attached....

It's all good. Bill passed Senate with language unchanged!

Now let's just hope he didn't get promises from other senators to vote for a standalone, as long as he agreed not to piggyback it on the spending bill.

Oh, he'll do it. The QH people in Oklahoma must have him in their back pocket.

Meanwhile in New Mexico, the judge granted the preliminary injunction against Valley Meat! Cannot slaughter or sell horse meat, cannot discharge wastewater, etc.

Here's the full ruling. I'm looking for a good synopsis.

De los Santos at least seems to be done.

Excerpt from ruling: "14. If a discharge applicant has a history of willful disregard of environmental laws within the 10 years preceding the permit application, the NMED is required to deny the permit application."

End of excerpt.


That would of course not stop another operator.

True. But that part of the ruling, the language about adulterated meat, and other things were very important to get on record, IMO. After all, the ban on federal inspectors is temporary.

You are right, of course, and I am glad that that got included.
