Energy Bill on the Floor by Summer? | AREVA North America: Next Energy Blog


From The, we are now starting to hear of a possible summer timeframe for the Energy-Climate Bill to reach the floor of Congress:

“Authors of an energy and climate bill are hoping to bring it to the Senate floor in June or July, Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said Tuesday. Lieberman, the coauthor of a compromise energy and climate bill with Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), said they hope for the legislation can come up in about a month, once he and Kerry have proved to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) That they’re close to achieving 60 votes for their bill.

“I’m hopeful, maybe the end of June, or July, sometime,” Lieberman told reporters at the Capitol when asked when he hoped for his and Kerry’s bill to move through the Senate.
