Senator Lieberman Booted From Environment & Public Works

Senator Joseph, right, had to pay a price for campaigning against Barack Obama, left. He retained his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, but the Senate Democratic Caucus booted him from the Environment and Public Works Committee.

Senator Lieberman has been a legislative global warming leader for years. He has introduced the McCain-Lieberman Climate Stewardship Act of 2003 (S. 139) and McCain Lieberman Climate Stewardship and Innovation Act (S. 1151-2005) and Warner-Lieberman (S. 280-2007) climate change bills over the the past five years.

Senator Lieberman is an Independent and has been a pivotal vote in the Senate. He is still important to the Senate Democrats in upcoming votes in the 111th Congress.
