Re: [greenyes] Alert -Senate Vote on McCain-Lieberman Amendment to Energy Bill
GreenYes Subscribers,

       Re:  Vote in U.S. Senate on McCain-Lieberman Amendment to Energy Bill

Senators John McCain (R - Ariz.) and Joseph Lieberman (D - CT) plan to press 
for a vote in the U.S. Senate on an amendment to the energy bill, which would 
cap greenhouse gas emissions.  While these senators expect the amendment will 
fail, they want a recorded vote.

Senator McCain anticipates a vote on Wednesday, July 30, but scheduling is up 
to Majority Leader Bill Frist (R - TN).  Sen. Frist is pressing for final 
passage of the energy bill this week or he may hold them in session and delay the 
August recess.

Faxed letters, telegrams and telephone calls are more effective than e-mail 
at this point.  Be sure to copy McCain and Lieberman on anything you send to 
your senators.

For more information read the article in the New York Times today or visit 
the Environmental Defense website.
