Obama to Huddle with House Dems on Clean Energy Bill

President Obama is calling all 36 Democrats from the House Energy & Commerce Committee to a meeting at the White House today:

A White House aide said Obama plans to meet with the lawmakers Tuesday to discuss two of his key domestic priorities – legislation to cut the emissions linked to global warming by requiring cleaner sources of energy and efforts to overhaul health care.

House Energy and Commerce Chairman Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., and Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., unveiled a draft bill in March that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions in line with a proposal Obama called for in his campaign.
