Enviro-Mich folks:  Michigan's US Senators again split on an extremely
important vote on funding of the Forest Service.  Senator Bryan offered an
amendment to the Interior Appropriations Bill that would shift funds within
the Forest Service from timber sale planning to fish and wildlife habitat and
road maintenance programs.  The amendment would also shift $10 million
into debt reduction. 

Senator Craig made a motion to table the amendment, killing it.  The Craig
motion passed.  The pro-environment vote was NAY on this Craig motion:

     --- YEAs 54---
       Abraham (MI)

       --- NAYs 43---
       Levin (MI)
