- Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate:

The House and Senate returned from the Memorial Day recess this week, with much of the focus on the National Security Agency, fiscal year 2016 appropriations, trade promotion authority. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has outlined additional June issues to include agricultural legislation, Affordable Care Act measures, and Environmental Protection Agency regulations, specifically legislation allowing states to opt out or defer compliance with the Clean Power Plan (H.R. 2042), to address coal ash (H.R. 1734), and to modernize the Toxic Substances Control Act (H.R. 2576).

Prior to recessing for the Memorial Day holiday, Senator John Thune (R-SD) indicated that tax extenders could be tied to a multiyear long-term highway bill, perhaps towards the end of the year. Given Representative Bill Shuster’s (R-PA) planned timetable for the Highway Bill, debt increase, the highway bill, tax extenders, and some small portions of tax reform could culminate in a full February 2016 package instead.
