McConnell: R.I.P. Cap and Trade

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “said Monday that cap-and-trade energy legislation is ‘dead’ in the upper chamber,” The Hill reports.

The Senate’s top Republican spoke before a local chamber of commerce in eastern Kentucky.

“I think cap-and-trade, which is also known as the national energy tax, is dead in the United States Senate,” McConnell said, according to WKYT.

McConnell warned the audience “that the Obama administration could attempt to mandate some cap-and-trade policies through the executive branch, but said that was unlikely in an election year.”
