The hearing examined issues associated with the inclusion of the airline sector in the ETS, a program that caps greenhouse gas emissions for certain industries in the EU, and its potential impact on U.S. air carrier operations. Lawmakers heard from DOT Secretary Ray LaHood, as well as European Commission Directorate-General for Climate Action Director General Jos Delbeke and a panel of industry stakeholders.
