Examiner: Climate bill clears House in close vote


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.”
