- Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate:
The House and Senate are in session until the July 4 recess. Congress and the White House will focus much of the week trying to save the trade agenda; the House will vote again this week on the Trade Adjustment Assistance Act after Democrats and 158 Republicans refused to support the measure, though the chamber passed legislation giving President Obama fast track Trade Promotion Authority. The Senate will continue to work on the National Defense Authorization Act, nominations, and appropriations measures. The House is scheduled to vote on healthcare, ISIS, intelligence, and appropriations legislation.
Energy issues, including the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed ozone rule, coal ash standards, the Renewable Fuel Standard, appropriations, and nominations, will see some time in several committee hearings.
