Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA) is expected to soon reintroduce legislation that would place a price on carbon. The bill is expected to be similar to the Carbon Limits and Energy for America’s Renewal (CLEAR) Act that she and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) introduced back in 2009. The “cap-and-dividend” approach seems to be reflected in more recent carbon tax bills being developed by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as well as Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), and Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI).
