The Roll Call Fabulous Fifty

The movers and shakers behind the scenes on Capitol Hill

Corrections appended: Sept. 14, 2007

The Roll Call Fabulous 50 in Monday’s Guide to Congress incorrectly stated that Terry Sauvain is the majority staff director for the Senate Appropriations Committee. Charles Kieffer holds that position. Additionally, two titles were incorrect in the original online edition. Kyle Simmons is chief of staff for the Senate Minority Leader, and Pat Souders is chief of staff for the Senate Majority Whip.
