- Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate:
Congress returns this week to being their spring work period, and energy issues are expected to garner significant attention.
We anticipate that the annual appropriations process (see the attached legislative update), the Highway Trust Fund, and a host of messaging bills will dominate this work period. The House plans to quickly move the first of the fiscal year 2015 appropriations bills to the floor soon, with others to follow shortly in May. House appropriators have signaled that they plan to have all 12 measures passed on the floor by the time they depart for the August recess. After addressing the minimum wage, the Senate plans to move to the Senate Finance Committee-approved tax extenders package, as well as the Shaheen-Portman energy efficiency measure (S. 2074), a national manufacturing strategy (S. 1468), and Presidential nominations. The Senate plans to address some of the first appropriations bills on the floor in June.
