Tuesday, June 29, 2010 - 03:08 PM

Politico is reporting that Democrats have agreed "to scale back their ambitious plans to cap greenhouse gases across multiple sectors of the economy," but says President Obama is holding firm on setting a "price for greenhouse gases."   In a Q&A with reporters,  Senator John Kerry (D-Mass)  didn't specify whether  setting caps in the transportation sector would remain part of the bill.   More soon.    (And don't forget to read Todd Zwillich's full post on the behind-the-scenes maneuvering.)
