    At a hearing of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee today examining job loss in the manufacturing industry, U.S. Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine) pressed U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on the critical imperative to assess the adverse affects of proposed rules on the paper industry. Senator Snowe, who asserted the paper industry is a cornerstone of America's manufacturing sector, insisted the Department do a better job of understanding the implications of proposed regulations on job creation.

In doing so, the most powerful press representative present was a publisher who has repeatedly endorsed two groups the United States has designated as terrorists.

    Hoaxes: Despite failures at Copenhagen, the fraud of the IPCC and the farce of Climate-gate, the administration wants an agency to monitor climate change. Why must we fund one-stop shopping for climate charlatans? As the climate freezes, there's no freeze on federal employment that will grow even more with the establishment of a new agency, the Climate Service office. The new agency was announced Monday by Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

    Commerce Secretary Gary Locke is urging census volunteers to reach out to hard-to-count communities, where Hispanic and Asian immigrants often mistake the workers as law enforcement officials or tax collectors. In his first public appearance as secretary, Locke spoke at a training conference Monday held by the Census Bureau for partnership groups ranging from AFL-CIO to the NAACP and Vote Latino. He stressed that personal information submitted on the census form will be kept absolutely confidential.

Locke, a two-term Democrat who leaves office in January, also announced a freeze on state government purchase of four-wheel-drive sports utility vehicles. The state motor pool will begin shifting to hybrid vehicles. The proposal to adopt California's auto standards, effective the 2009 model year, is the centerpiece of the lame-duck governor's package of bills to combat global warming.
