The Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2016
The Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2016, first introduced by Senators Murkowski and Maria Cantwell in 2012, may be finally getting passed. The last energy act passed by Congress was back in 2007. We are long over due for change. However, we still have to wait and see until it is finally passed to see what is really going to happen. The NRDC and 9 other major environmental organizations have expressed concern over the act as it now stands in a letter dated yesterday. This is a bi-partisan bill in an arena where playing nicely together generally does not occur. At this time Congress is debating the many amendments which fall on all sides of the issue.
