Senate Democrats are attempting to force a vote on climate change



"Senate Democrats are attempting to force a vote on climate change through an amendment to the defense authorization bill.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s (D-R.I.) amendment calls for the U.S. to 'assess, plan for, and mitigate the security and strategic implications of climate change' out of concern for national security.

It is unclear whether the amendment will surface on the floor as senators work to complete the sweeping defense policy bill as soon as Tuesday."

Interesting strategy. Largely symbolic but it keeps CC on the map, and could have implications for a budget resolution.
