ABSTRACT
The article reports on the cap-and-trade legislation proposed in the U.S. Senate that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the country. Some congressional supporters of the legislation have showed hope that a swift markup of a bill by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee implies that there will be a bill on the floor. The bill is sponsored by Senators Joseph Lieberman and John Warner that aims to call for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in 2005 levels to nearly 70% below by 2050. Warner is the only Republican to support the bill, which got out an 11-8 vote on committee.
