Chambliss Seeks More Analysis From USDA


Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) and other members of the Senate Agriculture Committee wrote to Joseph Glauber, the Agriculture Department’s chief economist, on Friday, requesting updates on the USDA economic analysis of the Waxman-Markey climate change bill.

Chambliss told Glauber that the analysis is a first step in understanding the impacts of the climate change bill on agriculture, but it is more appropriate for USDA to use a range of estimates, rather than rely solely on estimates from the Environmental Protection Agency.
