Dems likely to probe Gorsuch environmental views this week
The Senate Judiciary Committee today kicks off a multiday hearing on President Trump's nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Environment and energy issues likely won't be the focus of the hearing, but Democratic senators may give such issues more play than in prior Supreme Court confirmation hearings, court watchers said, given the Trump administration's plan to undo a host of Obama-era regulations.
