Senate Dems’ Energy Meeting: Too Much Wind, Not Enough Wind Power
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) held a meeting with the Senate Democratic caucus yesterday to discuss the fate of energy legislation — and address the key question of whether it will include a price on carbon. But they didn’t get that far. Darren Samuelson, Politico’s crack new energy reporter, has the story:
Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada dedicated an hourlong session to a “full, frank discussion” of three competing proposals for overhauling the nation’s energy policies and trimming greenhouse gas emissions. But senators spoke for so long that they had to bump back a more detailed question-and-answer session for another meeting that’s tentatively scheduled for next week.
