Climate Protection Act of 2013
Under the legislation, a fee on carbon pollution emissions would fund historic investments in energy efficiency and sustainable energy technologies such as wind, solar, geothermal and biomass. The proposal also would provide rebates to consumers to offset any efforts by oil, coal or gas companies to raise prices. (Bernie Sanders' Office)
The proposal was drafted as two measures, the Climate Protection Act and the Sustainable Energy Act.
