Lawmakers to learn about global warming bill (6:46 a.m. 1/20/10)

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Legislature’s attorneys are set to give lawmakers a run-down on a sweeping clean energy bill.

The measure would mandate 25 percent of the state’s energy come from renewable sources by 2025, create vehicle emission standards and do away with the state’s ban on new nuclear power plants.

The state Senate Select Committee on Clean Energy and the Assembly Special Committee on Clean Energy Jobs are scheduled to hold a joint hearing on the bill Wednesday.

The Legislature’s policy lawyers are scheduled to give a briefing on the bill. The committees also will take testimony from invited speakers.
