Not All Senators Are Treated Alike

The Environmental Protection Agency has told Republican Senators Jim Inhofe (OK) and George Voinovich (OH) that it will not provide the analysis they sought of the House cap-and-trade bill, but it will provide an analysis (pdf) for a bill it expects Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to introduce in September.

Among other things, the Senators sought (pdf) a “cost analysis of the Waxman-Markey provisions on households and energy-intensive, trade exposed industries.”
