Members of the Senate Democratic caucus met on June 24 to discuss possible provisions for comprehensive clean energy legislation Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to bring up next month.  Democratic chiefs of staff are to be briefed Friday on the various climate proposals.

At this point it seems any of the components could be included in a final piece.

Reid said that whatever form clean energy legislation will take, the Democratic Caucus agrees:

it must deal with the catastrophe in the Gulf;

it must create millions of jobs;

it must cut pollution; and

it must strengthen our economic security, our national security and our energy independence
