Midwest Utilities Push Senate Climate Trio for More Allocations

"A group of 14 Midwestern electric utilities continued its push today for a different direction on global warming legislation, asking the Senate's lead climate negotiators to get a full economic study on their bill for businesses and consumers in coal-dependent states.

The Midwest Climate Coalition -- an ad hoc group that includes MidAmerican Energy Holdings Co., Wisconsin Energy Corp. and Alliant Energy Corp. -- requested the comprehensive economic report from all federal agencies that looks into the costs over the next 20 years from the legislation still being crafted by Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.)."
