Webb to Vote with GOP Filibuster on Climate Action?

I've heard from sources that Sen. Webb is "leaning against" supporting the Climate Security Act. Apparently Sen. Webb wants to protect coal interests like the Wise County coal-fired power plant, which a Virginia State Corporation Commission analysis shows would result in a net loss statewide of 1,474 jobs.

Hard as it is for me to believe, I'm told there's a real chance Sen. Webb could vote against Democratic leadership and with Sen. James "Global Warming is a Hoax" Inhofe on this bill. (That is, if the Roadblock Republicans ever let it come up for a vote in the first place.)

A vote on continuing debate on the bill is expected to happen by Friday morning at the latest. If you haven't already, please take a few minutes to
call Sen. Webb right now at (202) 224-4024 to ask him to strengthen and pass the Climate Security Act.
