LIEBERMAN-WARNER GLOBAL WARMING LEGISLATION

Today Senators Joseph Lieberman, I-CT, and John Warner, R-VA, released the detailed outline of an economy-wide global warming bill that would significantly limit greenhouse gases.   I am extremely pleased with the comprehensive nature of their bill and the strong, bipartisan leadership they bring to this critical effort.   I also believe this bill has important national security implications because it will lessen our dependence on foreign energy and help achieve energy independence.   We have an historic opportunity to address the most compelling environmental, energy independence and national security issue facing our nation.   I pledge to work closely with my colleagues to turn this historic opportunity into reality.
