US senators look at 'hybrid' plan on climate bill
WASHINGTON Jan 28 (Reuters) - U.S. Senate negotiations on a climate control bill will continue with senators looking at possible alternatives to the cap-and-trade plan for reducing carbon dioxide emissions, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham told Reuters on Thursday.
Graham, a Republican, said President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech opening the door for nuclear power and oil drilling helped efforts for a bill that could include "a hybrid system" for reducing U.S. carbon emissions.
He added it was "yet to be determined" if senators could come up with a bill that could pass.
