For the first time, legislation aimed at curbing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions has passed a house of Congress. On June 26, the House of Representatives approved the American Clean Energy and Security (ACES) Act by a vote of 219 to 212, with eight Republicans voting in favor and 44 Democrats opposing. The debate now moves to the Senate, which has already begun assembling its own version of climate legislation.
