Sen. Boxer announces plans to form ‘climate change caucus’



"Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that she’s forming a “climate change caucus,” and argues that Hurricane Sandy “changed a lot of minds” on the topic.

“It is going to work with all the committees and all the committee chairmen to make sure we can move forward legislation that reduces carbon pollution and also works on mitigation and all of the other elements,” she said.

“I think you are going to see a lot of bills on climate change,” Boxer told reporters. “I don’t know whether cap-and-trade, but there will be a lot of different bills. I have already spoken to three colleagues that have bills in the works,” she said."
