Reid, Coburn Clash Again – Over Sharks

Wednesday, 29 Sep 2010 12:25 PM

The running feud between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., continues -- this time over a bill to protect sharks. Reid supports it, and Coburn opposes it, Politico reports.

coburn,sharks,reidCoburn Wednesday objected to several bills meant to protect wildlife, including the shark bill, which prohibits harvesting of shark fins. He says the bills just benefit special interest groups and add to the budget deficit.

When Coburn made the routine request to be recognized on the Senate floor, Reid objected. Coburn was briefly speechless before standing up to detail his views. The two have clashed repeatedly during this Congress.
