Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said today “he’ll huddle with key chairmen after an end-of-month recess to discuss the future of energy and climate legislation,” The Hill reports.
Reid acknowledged the energy and climate bill set for unveiling Wednesday by Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), but signaled he wouldn’t figure out how to proceed with that and other energy and climate efforts until after the Memorial Day recess.
"What I intend to do after that is let this bill be seen by everyone that is interested in the subject, and I think the week that we get back after the Memorial Day recess, and I’ll get all the chairmen together and take a look at what we need to do with energy for this year," Reid told reporters at the Capitol following a weekly caucus luncheon.
