US House Action to Spur Energy Development: The Hill
The US House of Representatives will vote on four energy or environment bills this week designed both to crack down on federal regulatory efforts and spur energy development, reports The Hill.
"The Rules Committee on Monday will begin the process of bringing to the floor Rep. Pete Olson's (R-Texas) bill to slow down the EPA's regulatory schedule for ozone pollution.
"Republicans and industry groups have rallied around the bill as a way to help states and localities come into compliance with current ozone standards before new ones roll out.
"Later in the week, the House will vote on three energy bills.
"One would extend permitting for hydropower facilities; another would ease restrictions on energy imports and exports with Canada and Mexico; and the third would overhaul the permitting of interstate natural gas pipeline projects."
