FORGET CAMP DAVID, FORGET SURVIVOR, WATCH CAPITOL HILL
I don't get it. Why are the 24-hour news media, always desperate for gripping
stories, reporting every hour on the Camp David summit, where, as I
column, they have no access to what's really going on? Why don't some
eager reporters move over to Capitol Hill to cover the constantly changing,
fully public, ludicrous, horrifying, astounding, comical, fascinating
would argue, far more important Annual Battle of the Environmental Riders?
Which is more important to Americans, anyway, the governance of East Jerusalem
or the purity of the air we breathe? Who is more pig-headed, Yasir Arafat,
insistent on carving out his own poverty-stricken nation from odd
Middle Eastern desert, or Senator Frank Murkowski (R-Alaska), intent on cutting
down the Tongass National Forest? A forest, the reporters might point
some interest to all of us, because we own it.
Here's a dramatic story, just one of fifty being enacted within the busy
our Congress this week. Senator Pete Domenici (R-New Mexico) is working to
become the first person ever to be given credit for extinguishing a
has authored a small piece of legislation that would allow a drought-stricken
New Mexico irrigation project to pump every drop out of the Rio Grande
That is presently forbidden by the Endangered Species Act, because
drying up the
river would doom a silvery minnow that lives only there -- not to
other creature that lives there, endangered or not.
The irrigation district is one of the most inefficient in the West. Its
administrators have known they were running into water limits even in
non-drought years, but have done nothing to enforce water conservation measures
Because his relief bill for wasteful irrigators would never get anywhere
own, Senator Domenici, in time-honored Congressional fashion, turned it
rider. Riders are stuck onto big, necessary funding bills like leeches
or those parasitic lampreys that hang onto sharks. Those who stick them hope
that the president, to get the money he needs to run the government,
the bill and the public will not notice.
First Domenici pasted his rider to the bill that funds the Department of the
Interior. The enviros mounted so much opposition that he removed it and
attached it to the Energy and Water spending bill. Next to it sits another
rider that would block the Army Corps of Engineers from releasing extra
the spring from the Gavins Point Dam on the Missouri River in order to
breeding of endangered fish and birds downstream.
Every summer the major funding bills lumber through the committee rooms and
attract these nasty little riders. It's a daily story with much more import
than Elian Gonzalez, but so far it only plays on environmental websites.
a short excerpt from a Defenders of Wildlife report: "In other action, the
Senate defeated on a narrow 50-49 vote a rider by Sen. Don Nickles (R-Oklahoma)
to prevent any more presidential designations of national monuments without
congressional approval. Harry Reid (D-Nevada), the Senate minority
instrumental in rallying enough votes to persuade Craig Thomas
withdraw his rider designed to block a National Park Service decision to
prohibit the use of snowmobiles in most national parks."
In case you didn't follow all those double negatives, the Park Service,
noise and pollution and complaints from hikers and skiers, is trying to forbid
snowmobiles; Thomas is trying to keep that from happening. His rider is not
dead; he can re-attach it to any bill within reach, even at midnight at
conference committee when no one is paying attention. If media
only shine on this skullduggery, we'd find it at least as intriguing as
As of this week 52 anti-environmental riders are attached to various

little zinger (courtesy of Senator Larry Craig, R-Idaho) that would stop new
regulations on hardrock mining -- regulations that would protect groundwater,
ensure that mining companies pay for toxic cleanup, and allow the
refuse mining permits. Another rider authored by Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC)
would take land from Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Cape Hatteras
National Seashore for the building of two huge, pointless, destructive jetties.
There are riders to stop the government from spending any money to combat
climate change; to reduce the royalties that oil companies pay for extracting
oil from public lands; to stop the release of information telling us how
city's air pollution is; to stop the government from designating
in national forests -- and so on. Some of them will get all the way
president's signature, some will die. The story has more daily changes than
CNN, more suspense than Survivor.
Observant readers will note that all the sponsors of anti-environmental
have cited here are Republicans. That's not because I biased the pick, it's
because this is a Republican game. If we could watch the rider drama on the
news, it would not take us long to figure out who the bad guys are.
Maybe one reason we are shown Camp David and Elian and the X Files and Survivor
and campaign ads instead of the actual working of our actual government is
precisely so we won't figure that out.
