Thanks to all of our letters and phone calls, the U.S. House and Senate passed President Obama’s budget last night – with language that puts cap and trade legislation in the agenda for this year!
This vote is an important step forward because members of Congress who have never before supported action on global warming are now on record supporting an agenda for the year, including a cap on global warming pollution.
The work of Greenpeace and all our volunteers and activists was crucial in passing the budget and defeating efforts to strip global warming from the bill. Thanks to all of you for your efforts!
