Top Labor Union Supports Climate Legislation

The largest U.S. labor union is now supporting the federal climate legislation.

Huffington Post reports:

"The AFL-CIO sent a letter to the House of Representatives on Capitol Hill on urging passage of the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, otherwise known as Waxman-Markey. It is, an aide says, perhaps the first time the union has come out in favor of a bill whose primary purpose focuses on climate improvement. And with the outcome of the legislation still in doubt -- even as the hour of the vote approaches -- the hope is that it can provide a modicum of coverage for lawmakers on the fence."
