As you may know, the Judiciary Committee had a fight this morning over whether to proceed to a vote on the nomination, or whether to take more time to investigate the newly-obtained documents about RAGA fundraising. That fight is, I believe, unresolved at this point -- but from the sounds of it this morning, I expect Senator Hatch to ram this through to a vote this evening.
If so, then the time will have come to contact all Senators, not just those on the Committee, if you (a) care to do so, and (b) haven't done so already. You can see that a very large coalition of environmental groups -- so I am told, the largest coalition of national environmental and planning groups, and the largest-ever coalition of local grassroots environmental organizations, ever to oppose any of President Bush's judicial nominees -- has prepared a letter to all Senators about this nomination. The letter can be downloaded in pdf format from Earthjustice here.
