Climate Legislation

An update posted yesterday at CQPolitics reported that, “Democrats and Republicans on the Senate Environment and Public Works panel tried Tuesday morning to overcome a partisan standoff that could derail a major climate bill even before the committee votes.

“But despite tentative overtures by each side, the feud appears to be continuing.

“Committee Republicans followed through on a threat to boycott Tuesday morning’s session, saying they won’t begin work on the bill until they see a full cost analysis of the measure, which would cap greenhouse gas emissions and establish a market for trading government-issued pollution allowances.”
