Reid touts clean energy and says the Senate could (still) pass a Renewable Electricity Standard

Senate leader Harry Reid said today that he would continue to push for a clean energy bill after Congress is back in session, but the shape of such a bill could not be prefigured because Democrats and Republicans would have to reconsider the issues.

“I don’t think we can define where we’re going to wind up because it’s a work in progress,” Reid said at a news conference on Tuesday.
A new Senate energy bill would not, however, contain a cap-and-trade provision, Reid said.
