It's energy week, kind of

The House has declared this week "energy week," but it's been pared down to just two days of focusing on energy legislation.

Representative Richard Pombo (R-CA) has introduced a bill to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, the same bill that passed the House last year but failed in the Senate.

Critics are calling the "energy week" a sham since they know House leaders are aware the bills will never get to the President's desk. Republicans in the House are trying to highlight their solutions to the nation's energy crisis.
