GLOBAL WARMING BILL: COMPROMISE. A Republican filibuster has forced Senate leaders to give up key provisions of the energy bill, including the repeal of tax breaks for oil companies and standards for renewable electricity. The bill passed by the Senate includes a requirement to manufacture fuel-efficient cars that deliver more miles per gallon. Latino and small business leaders had urged Congress to agree to an aggressive plan for higher fuel efficiency standards.
