Crisis Averted-Hopefully

This just in, according to a source in DC:

This amendment has the support of Senators Domenici and Bingaman as well as the US Secretary of Transportation & the Administrator of the FAA.

Please call or email the following Senators ASAP asking that they support the Craig Amendment to the Energy bill. *_The conference meeting begins at 1 PM. The calls/emails must be made before then._*
