The Climate Stewardship Acts

The Climate Stewardship Acts were a series of acts introduced in the 108th United States Congress. Senators Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) and John McCain (R-AZ) introduced the first bill in 2003. It was followed in 2004 by a House companion of the bill introduced by Representatives Wayne Gilchrest (R-MD) and John W. Olver (D-MA). Starting in 2010, the bills would have capped greenhouse gas emissions of the electricity generation, transportation, industrial, and commercial economic sectors at the 2000 level, while providing for market-based trading of emission allowances.
