DC Hill Update 6/14/10: With Murkowski defeated, Senate turns to climate and energy legislation

US Capitol small

Last week we won an important victory by beating Senator Lisa Murkowski's "Dirty Air Act" 53-47. While it's good that Murkowski was defeated, it's outrageous that a measure like this -- which would have been the equivalent of allowing the Gulf oil disaster to gush for another 250 years -- made it to the Senate floor. This week, the Senate will discuss proactive responses to our energy challenges, including the drilling disaster and our overall reliance on dirty fossil fuels.
