EU-ETS bill advances

Today, the Senate Commerce Committee approved the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme Prohibition Act.  The bill was passed by voice vote and may now head to the Senate floor for a vote.  ALPA thanks Senator Thune for sponsoring this important legislation, and all the members of the Commerce Committee who supported it today.  As the House has already approved similar legislation, we urge the Senate to bring this bill for a vote as soon as possible.  The EU-ETS is an illegal tax on our airlines, and its enactment must be prevented.
