Coalition launches campaign to pass climate bill

Post Time:Sep 09,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:201

A coalition of environmental, labor, veterans and religious groups formally launched a national lobbying campaign Tuesday [Sept. 8]aimed at mobilizing grass-roots support for passage of a Senate climate bill this fall.

The group--dubbed Clean Energy Works--marks perhaps the most ambitious effort yet to enact legislation that would cap greenhouse gas emissions linked to global warming. The coalition has enlisted organizers in 28 key states to help build support for a cap-and-trade bill, and is scheduled to launch paid television ads this week. It also plans to bring 100 veterans to Washington this week to lobby, and has held town halls and rallies in several states, according to a Sept. 8 article in The Washington Post.
