Legislation expected on the Senate floor this spring already includes a provision establishing a Federal Reserve-like board designed to monitor a new U.S. carbon market and make changes if the system gets too rocky. While that idea satisfies some key constituents, it is not enough for other players on and off Capitol Hill.
