Just in from Washington

Climate change bill expected to take the spotlight when the Senate returns from recess next week.

Washington--On June 10th Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) is scheduled to ask for a vote on her resolution that would kill the Environmental Protection Agency’s scheme to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act. AFBF strongly backs the Murkowski resolution.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) also plans to meet with committee chairs the same day to plan a schedule for Senate consideration of climate change and energy legislation. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to spur consideration of the bill.
