New Hampshire Lawmakers Pass Carbon-Market Repeal Measure

New Hampshire’s Republican-led legislature cleared a bill to withdraw the state from the U.S. Northeast’s carbon-trading market, a proposal that may be vetoed by Governor John Lynch.

The legislature passed a shoreland protection bill today with an amendment that would pull New Hampshire out of the 10-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, Carole Alfano, a spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, said in an e-mail.
