Climate Issues: Senate Legislative Alternatives

An update posted yesterday at CQPolitics reported that, “In a move that threatens Democratic efforts to advance a climate change bill, two influential Senate Republicans are throwing their support behind competing legislation unveiled Wednesday by Richard G. Lugar, R-Ind. [bill text, outline, two-page summary, and additional analysis].

Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, the ranking Republican on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee and the point person on energy matters in her caucus, signaled her support Wednesday.

“‘I talked to him very briefly at lunch yesterday and I’m looking forward to supporting it,’ she said.”
