After the Senate passed a bipartisan energy overhaul bill last week (S. 2012), both chambers will embark on a variety of energy bills this week. The Senate continues work on the $37.5 billion energy and water spending bill (S. 1140) with a roll call vote later today and amendment votes scheduled tomorrow. There is also a slew of markups planned for energy-related legislation – ranging from pipeline safety to nuclear R&D in the week ahead.
