Martinez backer withdraws support

BY STEVE BOUSQUET

TALLAHASSEE - A prominent Washington lawyer who was White House counsel for former President Bush has withdrawn his support of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mel Martinez, citing the candidate's past ties to trial lawyers and Democrats. C. Boyden Gray agreed to raise money for Martinez last month. But he dropped those plans and will support former U.S. Rep. Bill McCollum. In a letter of explanation, released Monday by the McCollum campaign, Gray said Martinez would be an obstacle to stopping frivolous lawsuits because of his past ties to the trial bar.

Between Mouthfuls, Reporters Hear a Mouthful

It had the desperate atmosphere of a red-light district, these hallways of the hotel where the President's Commission to Strengthen Social Security met Wednesday. Here, in the fierce competition for public opinion, interest group representatives strutted about with bold-faced press releases and laid bare their hospitality tables piled high with pasta salad and cold cuts. The goal: lure reporters into their news conferences.

No testing may mean increased pollution

BY CRAIG PITTMAN

But at a public hearing, state environmental officials said it won't be enough to violate federal laws. Other speakers disagreed. Ending auto emissions tests will add an estimated 12 tons of pollutants each day to the air over Tampa Bay. State environmental officials said at a public hearing Tuesday that the increase is not enough to violate federal air pollution laws.

Emissions test hearing ends with a whimper

BY CRAIG PITTMAN

The EPA was flooded by mail favoring tests, but only 40 people - fans and foes - show up in West Palm. Though more than 1,000 people wrote to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to protest ending auto emissions testing in Jacksonville and South Florida, only 40 showed up at a public hearing on the issue Thursday night.
