U.S. Republican unveils bill calling for carbon tax

A Republican lawmaker in the U.S. House of Representatives unveiled a bill calling for a carbon tax on Monday, saying he hoped the legislation would at the very least renew a U.S. debate on climate change that has languished for a decade, APA reports quoting Reuters.

Representative Carlos Curbelo, a member of the House tax committee who faces a tough re-election bid in Florida, said the legislation, called the “Market Choice Act,” enjoys small but growing support among Republicans, who in recent years have been better known for knee-jerk rejection of carbon tax proposals.

The measure is sure to fail. But Curbelo, speaking at a Washington forum on Monday, remained upbeat.
