On the Blog: Senate Dealmaking

Bipartisan energy efficiency legislation may or may not move in the Senate this week.

Its fate relies on some classic back-and-forth in: “The Wheeling, Dealing Senate.”

Featured Item

The House does not meet this week.

The Senate will continue debate on S. 2262, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2014. Its progress depends on whether a deal is struck between Democratic and Republican leadership.

In a variety of ways, the bill seeks to promote energy savings in residential buildings and industrial facilities.

Passage of S. 2262 would save about 8 cents per U.S. family.
