Reid about to take the reins in the Senate on climate and energy?


Headlines today that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (a democrat from Nevada) will soon be given the reins on the comprehensive climate and energy bill sitting in the Senate. The ball has been in the Senate’s floor since H.R. 2454 was passed last June.

The Senate version of this bill (S.1462) will place a cap on greenhouse gas emissions – similar to the House bill.  At the same time, it will expand domestic oil, gas and nuclear power production.

Along with this climate bill, Senator Reid must also think about his re-election campaign and a Senate schedule that includes financial reform proposals (regulating Wall Street) and a Supreme Court nomination with the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Stevens.
