Record snowfall in Washington Buries Cap-and-Trade Legislation

Democratic Senators say Cap-and-Trade legislation is dead for 2010. There was little chance of it coming up this year due to the lack of support and desire to shift the priority to jobs and the economy. The recent record snowfall in Washington will make it more difficult to convince people climate change legislation is an emergency.

Democratic senators say a bill that was once a top priority for the party and for President Barack Obama cannot be dug up again during 2010.
