CLIMATE CHANGE - The Obama administration would like to have a climate change law in place before international talks in Copenhagen in December. But oil, agriculture and manufacturing firms have lined up in opposition, saying it would add costs without guaranteeing environmental gains.
The House narrowly passed legislation to cut carbon emissions and Senate Democrats are expected to introduce their version of a sweeping bill. But it was unclear whether the full Senate will pass anything this year, despite the White House expressing a willingness to be flexible on its wish list.
Senate Democrats said they would not unveil their legislation until later this month, a timetable that has slipped several times since July as the Senate became bogged down in the struggle over healthcare reform.
