    OpenCongress Bill Summary

    • This is Congress' leading proposal to address climate change and global warming. It seeks to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by about 63 percent below present levels by 2050 through imposing limits on the emissions that manufacturers and utilities can release. It would also establish a carbon-trade market to encourage polluters to clean up their operation in the name of profit. It will be taken up by the Senate in June, and voting will take place on a manager's amendment that has been offered by Barbara Boxer. The vote and debate is expected to be extremely contentious.

    • On January 17, 2008, by donnyshaw - This bill -- or any climate change bill for that matter -- probably won't be approved during this session of Congress. It'll almost certainly come up for a vote, but I don't think the support is there to pass it. Nonetheless, it's going to be a big factor in how the U.S. responds policy-wise to climate change in the future. Representatives form the oil, coal and gas industries met up for a conference yesterday and agreed that debate of this bill will set the marker for debates next year. And, since its emissions requirements are weaker than some other bills in Congress, that they should support it as the best proposal they are likely to get. Interesting.

    • On June 02, 2008, by davy83202 - This just go's to show how stupid we all are if this is allowed. The more we allow the Government to do the less rights we posses. THIS BILL IS VERY SCARY and could kill our economy and our country. We cannot allow this bill to be passed.
