HB 1090 Climate Registry Fails 01/29/08; Passes 01/30/08 January 30, 2008

Posted by Laura Arnold in Uncategorized.

Rep. Ryan Dvorak (D-South Bend) introduced HB 1090 regarding the climate registry.

THE CLIMATE REGISTRY is a collaboration between states, provinces and tribes aimed at developing and managing a common greenhouse gas emissions reporting system with high integrity that is capable of supporting various greenhouse gas emission reporting and reduction policies for its member states and tribes and reporting entities. It will provide an accurate, complete, consistent, transparent and verified set of greenhouse gas emissions data from reporting entities, supported by a robust accounting and verification infrastructure.

DIGEST OF HB 1090 (Updated January 28, 2008 4:37 pm – DI 84)

Climate registry. Requires the state of Indiana to become a member of and participate in the climate registry concerning greenhouse gas emissions reporting and reduction. Requires the governor or the governor’s designee to sign the climate registry’s statement of principles and goals to become a member of the climate registry and deliver a copy of the signed statement to the climate registry before July 1, 2008.

Reread third time: failed for lack of constitutional majority Roll Call 78: Yeas 50, Nays 47. House rules require that bills receive a constitutional majority of 51 votes to pass third reading. If a bill does not receive 51 votes againt it as it was in this case it is also not defeated and therefore, the author can try again. Rep. Dvorak tried again today (01/30/08) around 11 AM and the bill passed 53 to 43.
