Newsclip®: [Technology] House committee wants Schneiderman records on Exxon climate probe - Times Union

"Republicans on a congressional science committee are asking state Attorney General to fork over a number of records related to his probe of climate change and what Exxon Mobil may have known about its effects on the environment. Thirteen GOPers on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee sent the letter to Schneiderman, a Democrat, on Wednesday expressing concerns that he and other state attorneys general may be trying to stifle the free speech of some because they have a different political view of climate change. 'The Committee is concerned that these efforts to silence speech are based on political theater rather than legal or scientific arguments, and that they run counter to an attorney general's duty to serve 'as the guardian of the legal rights of the citizens' and to 'assert, protect, and defend the rights of the people,'' the letter states. The letter requests a number of records, including all documents and communications", www.timesunion.com
