Texas officials discuss climate bill

AUSTIN, Texas (AP)--Texas officials are gathering in Austin to discuss what the climate bill in Congress could mean for a state that emits more greenhouse gases than any other.

Gov. Rick Perry has complained that efforts to drastically cut greenhouse emissions will hurt Texas' economy. He's opening the Sept. 22 daylong meeting with a speech.

Following Perry will be addresses from the state agricultural commissioner and representatives of the state agencies that regulate oil and gas, electricity and the environment. Industry officials, analysts and environmentalists also are set to speak.

The U.S. House narrowly approved the bill in June, and it's expected to be taken up by the Senate soon.
