Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., may have abandoned climate change and energy talks with Democrats months ago. But that doesn’t mean he’s given up on the possibility of a bipartisan energy bill, The Hill reports.

graham, energy, bill, pushHe’s recreating his idea for a “clean energy” standard for utilities. The proposal would require power companies to supply increasing amounts of energy from low-carbon sources, including nuclear power.

Graham says he wants to connect the idea with proposals to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from “overly” regulating several air pollutants, including carbon.

“I am going to try and get with some Democrats and Republicans and see if we can come up with a clean energy standard that has a regional flexibility, that focuses on clean energy, and keeps the EPA from overly regulating all these pollutants. That would be the tradeoff,” he says.
