While a Blue Dog Energy Task Force has already been created in the House, it now appears there will be a similar group formed in the Senate to address climate legislation. As many as 22 moderate Democrats could join the group, which would focus on deficit reduction and fiscal responsibility. A number of the Senators expected to be part of the group are from coal or manufacturing states, two industry sectors that could be heavily impacted by future climate legislation. Senators that have already joined the group include: Sen. Carper (DE), Sen. Bayh (IN), Sen. Lincoln (AR), and Sen. Landrieu (LA).
