Examiner: Climate bill clears House in close vote

Examiner:

The bill’s opponents, which included 168 Republicans and 44 Democrats, insisted that the legislation would raise consumer energy prices and would have negligible effects on global climate change.

Waxman-Markey now heads to the Senate where that body’s procedural rules often make closely contested bills much more difficult to pass.

In an interview, Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) was confident the bill would die in the Senate.

“It doesn’t matter, because we’ll kill it in the Senate anyway.”
