Boxer-Kerry Climate Package

Senators Barbara Boxer and John Kerry released their version of the Senate Climate Bill recently and it includes a tougher 2020 target than its companion bill passed by the US House of Representatives.

The Clean Energy Jobs & American Power Act sets reduction goals of 3% below 2005 levels by 2012 and 20% by 2020, rather than the 17% by 2020 in the House bill, sponsored by Congressmen Henry Waxman and Ed Markey, that passed in June. The long-term targets of 42% by 2030 and 83% by 2050 are identical in the bills.
