I lived in Alaska and can confirm that Don Young and Ted Stevens are not
friends of the environment by any means. They're responsible for the
Tongass National Forest timber sales that cost the US taxpayer to
subsidize Japanese lumber interests.
The Miller-Boxer bill is (probably) sponsored by George Miller in the
house and Barbara Boxer in the Senate - both environmental friends. I
also lived in California where George Miller was my congressman, and can
vouch for his (and Senator Boxer's) environmental records, which far
surpass those of Rep. Young and Sen. Stevens.
