A much-anticipated energy and climate change bill developed by Senators John Kerry (D-MA), Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was to be unveiled on April 26 but was delayed because of a Senate dispute over immigration reform. As we went to press, a bill had not yet appeared but recent reports indicated that it might in the near future. Major features are expected to include an overall greenhouse gas emission reduction mandate of 17 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050, utility-sector-specific “capand- trade” rules, subsidies for “clean coal,” incentives for nuclear power and (prior to the recent major oil spill near the Gulf Coast) new support for offshore drilling.
