"Things To Watch In Democrats' Big Climate Bill"

"Energy and Commerce Committee Democrats yesterday rolled out an enhanced version of their climate bill, an ambitious effort to overhaul the power sector and decarbonize the economy.

At the center of the new "CLEAN Future Act" is a clean electricity standard that would shoot for 80% clean energy by 2030 and 100% by 2035.

It's paired with more than $500 billion in spending authorizations and a wide range of environmental justice, transmission and environmental cleanup provisions.

The bill reflects a significant effort by House Democrats to line up with the Biden administration on climate policy and marks a first step toward addressing the issue on Capitol Hill."
