On April 24, Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) introduced S. 795, the Master Limited Partnerships Parity Act, which would extend MLPs to clean and renewable energy companies. Oil and gas projects are already able to leverage capital through this financing option. The bill has had bipartisan support both in and out of Congress: the American Petroleum Institute and 236 renewable energy groups have expressed support while Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) have cosponsored the bill. Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) introduced the companion bill, H.R. 1696, in the House. Attached is a summary of the legislation.
