Democrats have included a carbon border adjustment in their "climate-heavy infrastructure package." This was in response to the EU's debut of a carbon border tax.

Barry Rabe, J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Professor of Public Policy and Arthur Thurnau Professor of Environmental Policy, says that this is a “first test” of how the EU “might use the link to trade to begin to put pressure on other countries” to commit to fighting climate change through policy.
