In a rare victory for Democrats, the House voted today to strip a provision from an Interior and U.S. EPA spending bill that would have imposed a one-year moratorium on new Endangered Species Act listings. Rep. Norm Dicks' (D-Wash.) bid to strike the endangered species language was supported by 37 Republicans. Two Democrats -- Reps. Collin Peterson of Minnesota and Dennis Cardoza of California -- voted against it. "It's not quite as horrible a bill as it was," Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, said following the vote.
