The article reports on the agreement by some Northeastern states to a regional greenhouse gas-emission reduction initiative, the first multi-state U.S. cap-and-trade program for carbon dioxide (CO[sub 2]) emissions. The requirements of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative requires the states to cap CO[sub 2] emissions at levels based on the region's average emissions from 2000 to 2003 and maintain those levels through 2015.
