Request For CBO Reports on Emissions
SUMMARY: Democrats in Congress acted strongly to address climate change, but more must be done to avoid the most damaging consequences of climate change. Chairman Yarmuth asked CBO to prepare two reports that will inform future deliberations. The first will analyze trends in emissions in the electric power sector, with a focus on what has worked in the past and what impact they will have in the future. The second report will look at emissions in the transportation sector, focusing on trends and the factors affecting those trends going forward.
