Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate -

The House and Senate chambers, quiet for over a month, resumed regular business today. ML Strategies has produced a post-Labor Day outlook. Congress has several issues to address now that it is back in session including the appropriations process, the debt ceiling, the extenders package, and the grand bargain. Energy and environment issues may crop up as riders to these topics, such as the Keystone XL pipeline and the Renewable Fuel Standard. The nine major energy issues of note are Shaheen-Portman, the National Helium Reserve, the consideration of the proposed liquefied natural gas export terminals, the Keystone XL pipeline, the future of the Renewable Fuel Standard, the Interior Department’s fracking rule, President Obama’s climate action strategy, Environmental Protection Agency regulations, and the President’s Power Africa initiative. For a broader overview of the congressional to-do list, please see the attached copy of the ML Strategies Post-Labor Day Preview.

Please see full issue below for more information.
