Tentative victory on Arctic Refuge

A vote to end debate on the 2006 Defense Appropriations Bill (where Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens stuck the drilling amendment) just failed, 56-44. Hotline’s On Call: “It now returns to conference, where members will likely strip the ANWR plank from the text and resubmit it for a vote.”

from thinkprogress

So for those of you not following this... the defense appropriations bill is up for a vote... added to it is funding for avian flu and katrina victims.... ALSO ADDED is drilling in the ANWR......
