Browner briefs lawmakers on Copenhagen plans


Browner declined to comment after the meeting. Lawmakers in attendance included Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who is co-sponsoring the major Senate cap-and-trade plan with Boxer, and also working with Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) on proposals.

Others spotted leaving the meeting include Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), Tom Udall (D-N.M.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.).

Cardin similarly described the meeting as a chance to bring senators up to date on the upcoming Copenhagen talks and what the U.S. hopes to achieve.
