Will Rockefeller’s proposal to delay EPA climate action get a lame-duck vote?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) met late yesterday with Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) to discuss whether he would allow a vote on the West Virginia lawmaker’s proposal to delay the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate greenhouse gas emissions by two years.

Reid said yesterday before the meeting that he was unsure about bringing the proposal up for a vote in the lame-duck session, even though he had promised Rockefeller a vote on the bill before the end of the year. He told reporters yesterday:

It’s real hard just to say, yeah, we can do this, because we have limited time to go through all the procedural motions. But if there’s a way we can do it, I’ll be happy to work with him on that.

But after the meeting, both Rockefeller’s and Reid’s offices were quiet about whether any final decisions were made.

Regan Lachapelle, Reid’s spokeswoman said, “I don’t have a comment from the meeting.” And Rebecca Gale, Rockefeller’s spokeswoman, said simply, “Nothing yet.”
