Bono Mack Gets Behind Climate Bill


Rep. Mary Bono Mack on Thursday night cast the lone Republican vote in favor of a massive climate-change bill as a key House panel passed the measure. The legislation would limit industrial emissions, redefine strategies for renewable energy, re-regulate energy production and use, and set up a system of carbon emission caps.

As reported Thursday at, the seven-term congresswoman, who wrestled with the bill for weeks and was undecided on it until the 11th hour, cast her vote as a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, which approved it, 33-25.
