Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate

The energy debate continued this week, with a number of high profile issues making headlines in the Senate, reviews and critiques of the president’s budget request occupying significant committee hearing time, and the administration repeating its call for an all of the above energy strategy.

As debate over the Senate’s $109 billion highway and transit re authorization bill (S. 1813) continues, Senate leadership agreed to a deal late March 7 to consider 30 amendments to the measure including amendments related to high-stakes energy issues such as the Keystone XL pipeline, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Boiler MACT rule, offshore drilling, the NAT GAS Act, and renewable energy and energy efficiency tax extenders. The House will be in recess, returning the week of March 19.
