"Cap and Trade" Troubles Agriculture
Pennsylvania Farm Bureau
As reported and summarized in last month’s edition of Country Focus, the controversial Climate Change (“Cap & Trade”) legislation (H.R. 2454, the “Waxman-Markey Bill”) has landed in the U.S. Senate after its passage in the U.S. House of Representatives by a 219-212 vote margin. There is significant pressure from the White House, environmental organizations and the Senate Majority Leadership to achieve passage of Climate Change legislation this year. Senate Committees have been asked to finish their work by the end of September.
