The article reports that a proposed bill aimed at capping the greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. would place a greater burden on Northeast Ohio. It is stated that the region is particularly dependent on electricity generated by burning coal, which is a carbon-emitting process. The Senate began debating the measure, known as the cap and trade bill and if the bill is passed, the government would issue a decreasing number of emissions allowances to greenhouse gas emitters each year.
