Moderate Democrats Urge White House to Drop Cap-and-trade

Published Dec. 28, 2009

Moderate Democrats in the Senate are urging the Obama administration to stop urging passage of climate change legislation with cap-and-trade provisions in 2010. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and several other Democrats are speaking to the White House and party leadership about setting aside efforts on cap and trade.

“I am communicating that in every way I know how,” Landrieu said. Although cap-and-trade provisions are central to Democrats’ plans to curb global warming, some senators in the party are urging a focus on health care and the economy instead.

Farm Bureau’s grassroots “Don’t Cap Our Future” campaign against cap-and-trade provisions of climate change legislation continues to build momentum across the country. Visit AFBF’s “Don’t Cap Our Future” page on Facebook for state Farm Bureau updates and photos.
