A bipartisan group of senators and staffers met with NGOs on Thursday morning to talk about carbon tariffs. The discussions are nascent, but the meeting shows there’s serious interest on the Senate side in taxing carbon-intensive imports.

The Climate Leadership Council, Silverado Policy Accelerator and Resources for the Future were at the meeting, Whitehouse told Axios.
