Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

The Senate made an historic move Thursday to trigger the “nuclear option,” reducing the confirmation threshold for presidential nominees to a simple majority. Supreme Court nominees will still require 60 or more votes to be confirmed, but the change will allow Department of Energy, Department of the Interior, Environmental Protection Agency, and other nominees to move more quickly through the process.

Please see full issue below for more information.
