Climate Bill (Senate Delay)
An update posted yesterday at CQPolitics.com reported that, “Senate committee action on climate change legislation will be delayed until September, giving negotiators and their aides an extra month to work on the controversial legislation.
“Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., said Thursday she no longer intends to mark up the bill before the Senate leaves for its summer recess Aug. 7. Instead, she said, she will set the markup for early September.”
