House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Energy Bill Filled with Amendments

E&E Publishing reports that “lawmakers from both parties have filed dozens of amendments to the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s broad energy bill ahead of this week’s floor debate.”  

“The House Rules Committee is scheduled to meet this evening and tomorrow to sort through the multitude of amendments to the bill (H.R. 8), which aims to increase efficiency, speed natural gas exports and boost the aging electric grid.”  

“After months of bipartisan negotiations that collapsed over climate policy and other sticking points that Democrats wanted addressed in the measure, Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) moved the bill through committee in September with support from just three minority members”
