Senate Republicans seek hearing on White House changes to drilling report

“Under Carol Browner's watch, politics is trumping science. Congress must investigate the editing of scientific reports and secret meetings where nothing was put into writing.  As the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Oversight, I will demand that hearings be held immediately. This ‘Czar' should be accountable to the people, not the other way around,” Barrasso said in a prepared statement Friday.

The senators are among GOP lawmakers on both sides of the Capitol who are using the report as political ammunition against the White House.
