It turns out, reports that Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) would be stripped of her ranking Republican spot on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee were premature.

Politico, in a breaking news alert, reports:

Senate Republicans have decided not to strip Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) of her top position on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. But the Senate Republican Conference has voted to install Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) to serve as the vice chairman position of the conference — a leadership position Murkowski resigned last week.
