This week’s Energy & Environment Update recaps the very busy past week for energy and environmental issues both on and off Capitol Hill. Senator Coons introduced the Master Limited Partnership Parity Act on Wednesday. The following day, members of the Senate Finance Committee had their weekly, bipartisan meeting on tax reform; this past week’s meeting focused on energy policy. While no details of the discussion have been released, the Committee put out an options paper outlining measures it could potentially consider. The same day, several senators circulated a discussion draft of a bill on nuclear waste management. Off the Hill, the IRS released, as anticipated, updated guidance on Thursday on the definition of under construction for energy production and investment tax credits.
