The Senate may finish working on a fiscal year 2017 appropriations bill for energy and water development (H.R. 2028) Tuesday or Wednesday, as indicated by remarks of Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) on the Senate floor this afternoon. The problem today still was the amendment proposed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) to bar the U.S. from buying stocks of heavy water—usable in nuclear bomb development--from Iran.
Less clear is whether House-Senate negotiators will achieve a breakthrough on legislation (H.R. 2576) to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act. Remarks by Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) Friday were encouraging, saying they had “reached agreement on key sticking points,” but that was among senators, leaving for this week the prospect of reactions from House negotiators.
Reporter Pat Rizzuto reported the news in a story for Bloomberg BNA subscribers, Boxer, Inhofe Claim Agreement on TSCA Overhaul.
House committee action during the week will include a hearing Thursday at 2 p.m. returning to the tensions between federal regulators and state and local officials who often question whether their local expertise and authorities are being given due consideration by the Interior Department.

The Electric Power Research Institute will host a conference Tuesday and Wednesday on current and emerging issues in the electricity sector. The EPRI conference, at the Marriott Marquis hotel in the nation’s capital, will especially look at ozone regulations and the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan.
