Finally, Less Hot Air from Politicians!

Rep Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) likes his Prius so well, he's trading his hybrid with 80,000 miles on it in for a new one.

US News & World Report has this list of hybrid-driving members of Congress, party affiliation, and model they own:

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) Prius -- two of them
Sen. Robert Bennett (R-UT) Ford Hybrid Escape
Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN) Prius
Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-RI) Prius -- two of them
Sen. James Jeffords (I-VT) Ford Hybrid Escape
Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) Ford Hybrid Escape
Sen. Richard Durbin (D-IL) Ford Hybrid Escape
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) Ford Hybrid Escape on order

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) Prius
Rep. Michael Honda (D-CA) Prius
Rep. Tom Allen (D-ME) Prius
Rep. Brian Baird (D-WA) Prius
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) Prius -- 2 of them
Rep. Mike Doyle (D-PA) Ford Hybrid Escape
Rep. Jeb Bradley (R-NH) Ford Hybrid Escape

So, while they mull over a new national energy bill, these folks are saving on their personal energy bills. (Washington Whispers, USNews.com)
