Energy & Environment Update - March 2016 #2

Energy and Climate Debate -

Despite stalling recently over a debate on how to respond to the Flint water crisis, the Senate bipartisan energy bill is still alive and could see action as soon as next week provided that Sen. Stabenow (D-MI) is successful in her negotiations with Sen. Lee (R-UT) who has a hold on the Flint aid package related to funding. Sen. Vitter (R-LA) also had a hold on the Flint measure, but his issue, regarding fishing areas in the Gulf of Mexico, has been addressed and his hold released. Once the Flint package is approved by the Senate, it is expected to move quickly in the House of Representatives.

Also next week, we could see action on a short-term Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization, which may not normally be associated with energy and environment, but is reportedly a potential vehicle for a provision to address the non-solar technologies that were left out of the Investment Tax Credit extension and phase-down that was included in the omnibus spending bill last December.
