Debate begins tomorrow in the Senate on a broad energy bill (S. 2012). Its chief sponsor, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), has said she wants to keep it free from poison pill amendments, but there already are amendments piling up from both Republicans and Democrats, as Bloomberg BNA’s Ari Natter has been reporting (for subscribers, stories here and here).
Some Republican conservatives might balk at some of the provisions that would boost energy efficiency and subsidize clean energy projects. As Natter reports, Heritage Action for America, the lobbying arm of the conservative Heritage Foundation, opposes the bill and said it would record how lawmakers vote on it.
The House of Representatives postponed all votes until next week as Washington recovers from the weekend snowstorm. Most House and Senate committee hearings also have been rescheduled.
Here are other energy and environment events this week:
CLEAN POWER PLAN: Duke Energy's Venu Ghanta, AEP's Scott Weaver and NRDC's Ben Longstreth discuss the proposed federal implementation plan and model trading rules for the Clean Power Plan, 12:30 Wednesday, Resources for the Future, 1616 P. St., NW, Washington, D.C.
And Sarah Ladislaw, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, moderates a panel on state, federal and court activity around the Clean Power Plan, 10 a.m. Wednesday, CSIS, Washington, D.C. You can watch it live.
OIL PRICES: The Atlantic Council holds an event on
the effect of low oil prices on the Middle East, at 9 a.m. Thursday at its
Washington office, 1030 15th St., NW, 12th Floor.
