Energy Bill Hits Snag As GOP Sponsor Withholds Support

A compromise energy bill that many viewed as the best hope for U.S. climate change legislation this year hit a roadblock over the weekend when its Republican sponsor, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, withdrew his support in a feud with Democrats over timing for moving the legislation.

The bill was supposed to be introduced Monday with the backing of the Edison Electric Institute, which represents most U.S. electric utilities, and three of the nation's largest oil companies.
