A number of factors are conspiring against the Senate version of the bill: a Republican boycott on the Environment and Public Works Committee, a new EPA analysis that could take at least five weeks and wide-ranging disagreements among six competing Senate committee leaders who have jurisdiction.

"Some people are talking about not doing it until after the 2010 election," Commerce Committee Chairman John Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) said Tuesday.
