"Senate Climate Road Map Caters to Nuclear, Offshore Drilling Proponents"

"Architects of Senate energy and climate legislation reiterated their support for nuclear power and offshore drilling yesterday in an effort to garner the support of moderate Democrats and Republicans.

The framework from Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) offers only a rough sketch of what their bill will ultimately entail, but it touts plenty of industry incentives aimed at getting closer to the 60 votes necessary to defeat a filibuster."
