Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) and House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) promoted energy policy while addressing the National Association of Manufacturers’ annual meeting June 20. Speaker Boehner identified manufacturing in the coal, natural gas, and oil sectors as a new economic frontier. Chairman Upton said he plans to introduce a bill to promote natural gas in the transportation sector in the next few months; he also expressed concern that S. 761, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2013, might not make it to the House because the Senate amendment process might prove problematic.
