Kerry Spokeswoman: No decision on Transportation Carbon Caps Yet

Tuesday, June 29, 2010 - 04:21 PM

(Andrea Bernstein, Transportation Nation) Senator John Kerry's spokeswoman, Whitney Smith, emails the following in response to our query about including transportation emissions caps in the new senate energy and climate bill:

"Majority Leader Reid will bring a final comprehensive energy and climate package to the floor this July, but the final details of what will be included in that package have not been determined.

The reports today followed the bipartisan energy summit hosted this morning at the White House, where Republicans and Democrats, including my boss, discussed several compromise proposals in the Senate, one of which would target smokestacks/the country’s biggest polluters. But have to emphasis (sic) nothing has been determined on what will be included in the final Reid package, so unfortunately have no details to share at the moment on new transportation provisions that haven’t been written yet."
