Norton - Interior Department

NPR's David Welna reports that Interior Secretary-designate Gale Norton has won widespread backing in the Senate Energy Committee, which approved her nomination by an 18-2 vote. It now goes to the full Senate. The vote was a defeat for many environmental groups, who have organized a stop-Norton campaign. Meanwhile, the Senate has confirmed several more Bush Cabinet officials.
