The Senate is unlikely to pass climate change legislation this year after going through the contentious health care debate, and will focus on a separate energy bill that has more bipartisan support, a key Democratic senator said on Tuesday.

Democrats are seeking to iron out differences between sweeping bills passed by the Senate and House of Representatives to revamp the $2.5 trillion U.S. healthcare system, President Barack Obama’s top domestic priority.

“It is my assessment that we likely will not do climate change this year, but will do an energy bill instead,” Senator Byron Dorgan, told reporters in a telephone conference call.

Dorgan’s comments were at odds with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has said the Senate this spring would take up a climate change bill to cap and then reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions that are blamed for global warming.
