Excerpt from Energy & Climate Debate -

In times of such partisan politics, several energy bills continue to work their way through the legislative process. On May 8, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee approved five bills—four related to hydropower and the fifth involving energy efficiency—that will now be considered by the full Senate. The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee was to have marked up H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act, last Thursday. However, the committee rescheduled the mark up to be this Thursday. The bill has already been approved by the House Energy and Commerce and Natural Resources Committees.
