On July 22, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., announced he would not introduce a comprehensive climate change bill in the U.S. Senate this summer. Reid’s decision likely means that a bill aimed at regulating emissions of greenhouse gases will not be passed by Congress this year. Instead, the Senate is pursuing more limited legislation focusing on specific energy issues, including a response to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
