Interior Secretary Nominee Gets Poor Scores On Environment

By Scott McLean

President Bush's nomination of Idaho Governor Dirk Kempthorne as U.S. Secretary of the Interior has met with criticism from environmentalists.

Earthjustice Staff Attorney Todd True last week issued a statement that described Kempthorne's poor environmental voting record during his time in the U.S. Senate.

"As a one-term Senator, Kempthorne only cast one pro-environmental vote in six years, according to the League of Conservation Voters Scorecard. He also introduced a bill to undermine the Endangered Species Act that was unanimously opposed by conservation and scientific groups," True said.

The entire statement can be found on the organization's website at
www.earthjustice.org.
