ENERGY BILL WORKING ITS WAY THROUGH HOUSE
The House of Representatives could consider U.S. omnibus energy legislation in the next few weeks. The House energy and commerce committee allowed few changes to the bill in a rapid markup Mar. 11, and reported out the legislation 42-1. The lone dissenter was Rep. Bill Dannemeyer (R-Calif.). The House interior committee now will consider the offshore drilling portion of the bill and the science committee the energy research section.
