The full House of Representatives is expected to vote on the Greenhouse Gas bill this week and it is expected to pass. The US Department of Agriculture will be involved in the management of greenhouse gas from farmlands.
The Senate is expected to take up similar measures. The two senate committees involved are the Energy and Natural Resources Committee chaired by Senator Jeff Bingaman D-NM and the Environment and Public Works Committee chaired by Senator Barbara Boxer D-Calif. It is not certain that a greenhouse bill will get passed in the Senate. It will be close.
