President Barack Obama makes his last budget request tomorrow. There have been a few previews so far on climate change and energy, including a suggestion of a $10-per-barrel tax on oil to pay for clean energy, the POWER+ Plan to provide economic development in Appalachian communities where coal is in decline, and a plan to spend $7.7 billion for clean energy research and development. Check Bloomberg BNA’s reporting tomorrow for a deeper look at what’s in the budget.
Later today, the Senate resumes work on trying to pass a broad energy bill. Bloomberg BNA’s Ari Natter is reporting on whether senators can reach an agreement to provide funding for Flint, Mich., over its crisis with lead-tainted drinking water. Democrats were holding up the bill late last week over the issue.
