Summary

The same day, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made it clear the bill’s future was bleak in the upper chamber, saying that the “ill-fated Paris deal will go nowhere in the Senate.”“Sen. McConnell has been wholly willing to back up the president’s assault on climate policy, and the handful of Republicans who are uncomfortable about it in the Senate are not yet willing to directly confront McConnell in order to force any of this legislation to the Senate floor,” Murphy said.“Until Mitch McConnell gets real pressure from his caucus, which he isn't today, then nothing is going to change in the short run.” Some Senate Democrats are trying to raise that pressure.Sen.
