New Hampshire Senate Panel Opposes Bill to Leave CO2 Market

A New Hampshire Senate committee opposed a bill that would pull the state out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a cap-and-trade program for power-plant carbon-dioxide emissions.

The Energy and Natural Resources Committee voted 2-3 today on the bill that would withdraw New Hampshire from the 10-state program, Richard Parsons, an aide to the panel, said in a telephone interview. The bill is scheduled to get a vote in the full state Senate on May 11, Parsons said.
