Lucas, Chambliss Request Updated Climate Change Analysis

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) and Rep. Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), ranking members of the Senate and House Agriculture Committees, respectively, wrote to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on Thursday regarding his recent remarks on USDA’s climate change legislation analysis.

Chambliss and Lucas said the statement made by Vilsack implies a lack of confidence in the modeling used by both USDA and EPA. Additionally, they ask that both the USDA and EPA report to the House and Senate Agriculture committees on the problems with the economic model in order to reflect realistic scenarios while examining the impact of cap-and-trade on the agriculture and forestry sectors.
