WASHINGTON, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Three key U.S. Senators outlined their framework for a compromise climate deal on Thursday aiming to push the bill forward by increasing incentives for nuclear and offshore drilling.
The compromise between Senators John Kerry, a Democrat, Joseph Lieberman, an independent, and Lindsey Graham, a Republican, seeks to speed up the legislation by casting it as a jobs and energy independence bill.
