Senate climate bill would end EPA/state programs

The climate-and-energy bill being crafted in the Senate would limit the authority of the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate greenhouse gases and pre-empt state laws to curb emissions, sources say. Language in the bill to accomplish this is necessary to gain industry support, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who is crafting the proposal with Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn. Reuters (4/15) , The Politico (Washington)
