THE AGENDA — “Kerry Says Democrats May Take Broad Climate Bill After Election,” by Bloomberg’s Lisa Lerer and Viola Gienger: “Senator John Kerry said Democrats may take up his comprehensive climate-change bill in a lame-duck session after the November elections, while calling on President Barack Obama to escalate his advocacy for the measure. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid yesterday introduced a more limited energy bill that doesn’t include a cap on greenhouse gas emissions, citing the lack of support for a broader bill. The bigger measure ‘is not dead,’ Kerry said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s ‘Political Capital With Al Hunt.’ ‘If it is after the election, it may well be that some members are free and liberated and feeling that they can take a risk or do something.’”
