Policy riders targeting enviro programs to figure less in new Congress -- House chairman

The head of the House Appropriations Committee yesterday said he expects fewer policy riders to be included in spending legislation in the new Congress than in the one that just ended -- including those designed to rein in environmental programs.

Mikulski to take gavel as Senate shuffle is held to a minimum

The death Monday of Senate Appropriations Chairman Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) isn't setting off that many dominoes after all. Rather than undertaking a major shuffling of committee leadership, Senate Democrats instead decided to make history and today will tap Maryland Sen.

After a formal meeting of the Senate Democratic Caucus this afternoon, Mikulski will become the first woman to run an appropriations panel in either chamber of Congress.
