Kerry meets with key House Dems on climate bill

Markey (D-Mass.) helms the Select Committee for Energy Independence and Global Warming while Waxman (D-Calif.) is chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee. Their legislation contained a sweeping cap-and-trade system to limit carbon emissions.

The Senate's bill will likely include a limited cap-and-trade system combined with other strategies to bring down emissions levels. 

The three senators wrote the bill with the hope of attracting enough support to break a GOP filibuster of the measure.
