Looks like there's another big windfall for one of "george and co's" good friends.

.
The donor, George Yates, says his contributions and fund-raising assistance to Vice President Dick Cheney had nothing to do with the decision. The Interior Department says its drilling plan, while opening up more land in Otero Mesa, will be the most restrictive ever.
The Bush administration ''would allow 141 oil and gas wells over about 7 million acres; Interior is committed to protecting our public lands,'' department spokesman Mark Pfeifle said.
However, environmentalists are crying foul.
The Bureau of Land Management ''surrendered to the demands of one oil company and the political power of the name to which it was connected,'' the Campaign to Protect America's Lands said Thursday in contrasting the Bush administration's plan for Otero Mesa with the Clinton administration's.

Like they say, it's the giving that counts.
They also say that you have to give, before you can receive.
