Obama Aides Meet With Reid on Senate Climate Bill Push

Aides to President Barack Obama met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Democratic committee leaders to map out a strategy for gaining the 60 votes needed to pass a comprehensive energy and climate change bill when lawmakers return from the April recess.

The hour-long meeting in Reid’s office Wednesday included White House legislative affairs director Phil Schiliro and Obama’s energy and climate adviser, Carol Browner. “The leader feels before he brings up a bill he wants to know he’s got a shot at getting it through,” Senate Environment and Public Works Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said before the meeting.
