An indication of the bill's prospects came Tuesday as the
Senate killed an attempt to repeal
lucrative tax breaks enjoyed by the
oil and gas industry.
The move by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., would have raised
$35 billion over 10 years by limiting the ability of oil companies to write off drilling expenses and eliminating other tax deductions . . .
. . . the measure was
defeated 61-35. Twenty-one Democrats joined 39 Republicans in opposing the measure. Among those voting no was Lieberman, the co-sponsor of the climate bill.
