Senator Boxer said: "I am very pleased that Chairman Waxman has announced that he is going to move forward quickly with a comprehensive global warming bill."
"Chairman Waxman's announcement is especially important because last year the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee passed a strong global warming bill and brought it to the Senate floor, while there was no action taken in the House."
"I will complete a set of principles for my new legislation in the coming weeks. With the addition of Chairman Waxman's announcement and a new proposal from America's business and environmental leaders in the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, the writing is on the wall that legislation to combat global warming is coming soon."
