WASHINGTON — A group of Senate Democrats sent a letter yesterday to Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., urging them to add billions of dollars for transportation-related investments to the draft climate and energy bill the two recently unveiled.

“A number of strategies — including increased fuel efficiency, decreased carbon content of fuel, and greater transportation options — are necessary to accomplish meaningful reductions” in carbon emissions, according to the letter sent by Democratic Senators Thomas Carper of Delaware, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, and Jeff Merkley of Oregon.
