From National Journal:

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse wants EPA, as it crafts a major rule to cut carbon pollution from power plants, to explore how it could help states comply by taxing emissions. His broad comment letter to EPA on the planned rule states: “EPA should … carefully consider comments from the Brookings Institution, R Street Institute, and others on steps EPA could take to enable states to comply using carbon taxes or fees.” It also expresses support for states banding together in carbon trading systems.
