Liquefied Natural Gas Exports, Carbon Fees, and More – ML Strategies’ Weekly Energy and Environmental Update

Work continues in D.C., even as administration and Hill officials prepare for inaugural festivities. The incoming chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), sent a letter on January 10 to Energy Secretary Steven Chu advising the agency to not grant export licenses for liquefied natural gas until the deficiencies of an agency-sponsored study are corrected. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is planning to introduce legislation in February to impose a carbon fee, and the National Climate Assessment Development Advisory Committee released a draft of its National Climate Assessment on January 11.
