Senate Ponders 15-Cent-a-Gallon Gas Tax

Hosted by

Climate change legislation passed by the House is stalled in the Senate, and the latest possible compromise features a tax on gasoline. Though new taxes are anathema to Republicans, Senator Lindsay Graham of South Carolina thinks a tax at the pump might be the way to get votes from his GOP colleagues. He's working with Democrat John Kerry of Massachusetts and Independent Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut. Jim Tanklersley reports on the environment for the Tribune Company's Washington bureau.
