Bipartisan Plan To Cap Greenhouse Gas Emissions

August 2, 2007

Senators John Warner and Joe Lieberman were applauded by the Environmental Defense and the Virginia Climate Initiative Thursday for developing a bipartisan plan to cap U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.

The plan opens the door for Senate action on a climate change bill soon after the Congressional recess. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has committed to bringing an economy-wide climate change bill to the Senate floor once bipartisan legislation is approved by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

Senators Lieberman and Warner, the chairman and ranking member of the committee’s key climate change panel, are working with their colleagues to finalize their bill over the next few weeks and bring it to a vote shortly after Congress reconvenes in September.
