Chris Coons and Kevin Cramer have unveiled the CBAM data bill we told you about Tuesday.
Of note: The bill has a sizable group of cosponsors, including Angus King, Lisa Murkowski, Martin Heinrich, Lindsey Graham, Sheldon Whitehouse, Bill Cassidy and John Hickenlooper.
- “I think you’ll find support for it among lawmakers who have diverse interests on trade policy, diverse interests on climate policy,” said Greg Bertelsen, CEO of the Climate Leadership Council.
- Supporters think the bill would give the U.S. an advantage as the EU implements its own CBAM in the coming months.
- They hope to get it attached to larger legislation this year.
