What will President Barack Obama say about energy tomorrow in his last State of the Union address? The White House isn’t divulging that yet. But there’s a hint of a possible emphasis on renewable energy, because Mark Davis, owner of a Washington, D.C., solar business, will be among the guests in the first lady’s box. Bloomberg BNA reporters Dean Scott and Ari Natter will be reporting on all energy and environmental news from the speech.
Also this week, members of the House of Representatives are expected to vote tomorrow on a bill (H.R. 1644) that would stop the Interior Department’s rule that prevents dumping waste from mountaintop removal mining into streams. Bloomberg BNA’s Rachel Leven will have the story (related story for subscribers here).
Later in the week the House will vote on a bill blocking another environmental measure, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Rule (RIN 2040–AF30), which clarifies which waters and wetlands are protected under the Clean Water Act (related stories for subscribers here and here).
