DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A Democratic U.S. Senator from Rhode Island is in Iowa today - not to run for president - but to push for federal climate change laws.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse wants to impose a carbon fee for industries that use oil and gas and emit carbon pollution he says contributes to global warming. He believes chances of getting a bill passed are improving. He's pushing his ideas in Iowa because of its influence on presidential hopefuls already visiting in advance of the 2016 presidential election.

He says the biggest obstacle to getting a bill passed is heavy lobbying by industry but U.S. voters are increasingly calling for action.

He spoke to more than 200 people at the Capitol and had other events in Iowa Tuesday before traveling to Nebraska on Wednesday.
