  An Introduction to Climate Change Legislation

Remainder of Report

The remainder of this report consists of 15 issue briefs that explore in greater detail key issues related to the design of a mandatory federal climate policy for the United States. These issue briefs provide information on emissions sources, targets, and costs; program coverage and scope; price versus emissions certainty; allowance allocation; competitiveness impacts and responses; technology research and deployment; sector-specific issues surrounding electricity, transportation, and agriculture; the regulation of non-traditional GHGs; and offsets. While this overview has sought to draw out major themes and organize key points from the issue briefs around a series of questions, the briefs themselves provide a foundation for addressing the major questions policymakers will confront in designing federal climate legislation.
