“The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing Thursday morning examining the pros and cons of repealing a decades-old ban on crude oil exports,” The Hill reports.  

“It should make for an interesting hearing, as Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) has hinted at legislation to move the process along if President Obama doesn’t seek executive action to lift the ban.”
