This week the Senate energy bill (S. 2012) took center stage in Washington. Bloomberg BNA reporter Ari Natter took you through the twists and turns of the Senate efforts to bring the bill and a related aid package for Flint, Mich., to the floor. At the end of the week, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and other senators had placed a hold on a unanimous consent request to expedite the measure’s consideration, and the Senate Budget Committee took issue with the means used to pay for the Flint aid.
