Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., plans to bring a comprehensive energy and climate bill to the Senate floor by the end of the month that will include a cap on carbon emissions produced by the nation’s utilities.

Reid announced his plans after huddling with President Obama about the Senate’s July agenda and said he wants to introduce the bill, which has not yet been written, the week of July 26.

Reid was vague on details, but signaled he wants the bill to require the nation’s electricity providers to pay a price for emitting carbon, which the EPA says will lead to global warming.
