Congressional Energy Reform - New Bills and the Impact on Industry

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Congress is currently drafting the first comprehensive energy bill since the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.  Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairwomen Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Ranking Member Maria Cantwell (D-WA) have publically expressed their desires to introduce a Senate energy bill with four titles – efficiency, infrastructure, supply, and government accountability and reform – ready by the end of June and introduced before the August recess.  Meanwhile Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) of the House Energy and Commerce Committee is considering an energy package that focuses on infrastructure, boosting the energy workforce, and promoting energy efficiency. Both committees are holding hearings to discuss the potential bills and the impacts on the energy industry. Given the focus on grid modernization in both bills, could this be the moment to begin transition of outdated infrastructure to a more innovative energy system?  This webinar will include an in-depth legislative update on the status and progress of the hearings in both houses,  the practical significance of the proposals, and the feasibility and potential outcomes of getting an energy reform bill to the President’s desk.
