Sen. Boxer’s Statement on the Introduction of
Bingaman-Specter Global Warming Bill




Washington, DC U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, made the following remarks regarding the global warming legislation introduced today by Senators Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) and Arlen Specter (R-PA):



Senator Boxer said: I welcome Senator Bingaman’s contribution of a bipartisan, economy-wide global warming bill to the Senate debate on this issue.  I look forward to carefully considering his proposal in the Environment and Public Works Committee, along with the other global warming bills, as we move the legislative process forward.  I am optimistic that working together across party lines, we can pass strong global warming legislation in the Senate this year, and I believe Senator Bingaman’s bill is an important contribution to that effort.”
