CEQ Chairman Connaughton discusses push for 'Clear Skies' bill, EPA nominee approval

President Bush's top environmental adviser, Jim Connaughton, discusses the White House's legislative strategy for its controversial Clear Skies initiative with E&E Daily senior reporter Darren Samuelsohn. The chairman of the Council on Environmental Quality also makes the case that the Senate should have no problem dealing with the confirmation of Bush's eventual U.S. EPA administrator nominee at the same time it tackles the air pollution legislation. This is the first of two scheduled OnPoint appearances by Connaughton this week.
