Boxer-Kerry Draft Climate Bill Seeks Larger Emissions Reductions, Is Silent on Cap and Trade, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - October 2, 2009) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and John Kerry (D-Mass.) unveiled their long-awaited draft energy legislation in a press conference held in front of the U.S. Capitol on September 30. The staging was not accidental: News media photos and footage showed the two senators positioned before the Capitol dome, speaking in patriotic tones about how energy issues were inextricably tied to national security, and how the bill would strengthen and expand the U.S. economy. The draft bill, titled the "Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act," is 821 pages in length and differs in several respects from the Waxman-Markey climate change bill that the House of Representatives passed by a slim margin in June.
