Obama Meets With Dems on Energy Bill
The New York Times reports that President Obama met with a group of Senate Democrats at the White House today to discuss energy legislation. No word from the White House on the meeting.
From the Times story:
“Among the senators coming for lunch on Wednesday are the Democrats Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Robert P. Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania and Claire McCaskill of Missouri. The lunch is to make up for an earlier one that had to be canceled.
“The Democrats are trying to lure enough Republicans to overcome a filibuster and believe if they keep the utility industry emission cap narrow enough they might be able to win the support of Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Olympia J. Snowe of Maine, and perhaps also Susan Collins of Maine and Scott Brown of Massachusetts.”
