Climate change bill drawing amendments and Alaskan scrutiny

It was slow going with the Lieberman-Warner climate change bill in the U.S. Senate today. Bill sponsors had hoped to start dealing with amendments. But debate time didn’t start until early afternoon Eastern time. And when the bill was brought up, it contained revisions that Republican opponents hadn’t seen, so they demanded the whole thing be read word-for-word.
