Climate Change Legislation Now Off the Agenda

"Despite a new bipartisan push on climate change, legislation on the issue is unlikely to make it to the Senate floor this year," two Senate Democratic sources tell CNN.

"That would be a blow to three senior senators set to unveil a much anticipated bipartisan measure dealing with climate change Monday morning."

"The main reason sources say the prospects for the legislation are dim is because Senate Democratic leaders have decided to try to put immigration reform first on the agenda, and after that there likely won't be an appetite for another politically divisive issue before November's election -- especially with a Supreme Court nomination ahead and a desire to stay focused on the politically potent issue of jobs."
