The latest comes from Environment Massachusetts, which describes itself this way:
Environment Massachusetts is a statewide, citizen-based environmental advocacy organization. Our professional staff combines independent research, practical ideas and tough-minded advocacy to overcome the opposition of powerful special interests and win real results for Massachusetts’ environment. Environment Massachusetts draws on 30 years of success in tackling our state’s top environmental problems.
MASSPIRG veteran Rob Sargent is a major player in the organization, which is currently running a TV spot that features local residents whacking Brown for not being the politician they voted for – because he voted for what they call the Murkowski Big Oil Bailout.
(UPDATE: Found it – here.)
But Brown is making progress on another front: Republicans for Environmental Protection, whose bashing of Brown the hardworking staff has previously noted, is now praising the junior senator from Massachusetts (via News Blaze):
A strong, bipartisan oil spill prevention bill co-sponsored by Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) should be enacted into law, Republicans for Environmental Protection, a national grassroots organization, said today.
The Oil Spill Prevention and Mitigation Improvement Act of 2010 would require that oil companies, before drilling in America’s offshore waters, have an effective spill response plan in place that has been vetted by independent experts and determined technically feasible by the Secretary of the Interior.
Conclusion: Don’t expect a Brownout on the energy issue anytime soon.
