Industry attendees at the Senate's March 9 climate meeting
E&E News: Kerry, Graham and Lieberman met with several of the most prominent AEEG leaders last week, and according to sources in the room, outlined concessions they have already made for industry, including Graham's push for an expansion of domestic oil, gas and nuclear power production. An industry official said Kerry got attention with a pledge to include a "price collar" that gives certainty about how high compliance prices would go -- something long sought by electric utilities, oil companies and many others. "This is when people's ears picked up," the source said.
