I received an email pointing out that Sen. Don Benton, one of the senior Republicans in the Senate, is no longer on Transportation.
What happened with that?
What happened to Sen. Benton, who was, effectively, Ranking Member/Vice Chair of Transportation until now?
With the effort to keep the CRC beast in it's cage, we need him, and not Cleveland, on Transportation now... more than ever.
Is he being punished? Was he forced off? I can't believe he asked off... no one has worked longer to keep the CRC dead than Benton.
Him not being there does not bode well for the anti-CRC position, particularly when he was replaced by someone as clueless as Cleveland.
