WASHINGTON (AFP) – A Republican US Senator said Thursday that he and Democrats working on climate change legislation would unveil a new bill in mid-April, but warned that a "cap and trade" proposal was "dead."Twitter / David Roberts
"I will continue to work on producing that new product, a new way to achieve energy independence, create jobs, clean up the air and hopefully we'll have something for you after the Easter break," said Senator Lindsey Graham, referring to a two-week recess that ends the week of April 12.
Graham keeps saying cap-and-trade is "dead." Does he realize there's a C&T system IN HIS BILL? Maybe we shouldn't tell him.Twitter / Kate Sheppard:
