Climate Policy in the States

by William Yeatman on May 20, 2008

Norma Love of the AP reports that New Hampshire’s Senate voted 16-8 Thursday to join the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a 10-state regional effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions. The House next considers changes made to the proposal, especially on how much money would go into a fund to promote energy efficiency.


According to the Arizona Daily Star, Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano vetoed HB 2017 Thursday, which would have barred the state Department of Environmental Quality from enacting any regulations curbing greenhouse-gas emissions. Sen. Jake Flake, R-Snowflake, who wrote the legislation, said one possibility would be attaching its provision to other environmental legislation.


In Montana, the legislative Environmental Quality Council dismissed most of Governor Brain Schweitzer’s climate plan. The 54 point plan was written under the direction of the Center for Climate Strategies, an alarmist environmental non-profit whose prejudicial origins and operations are exposed by Paul Chesser of the Center for Climate Strategies Watch.
