The House Rules committee will consider legislation Monday that would delay for at least 15 months Environmental Protection Agency rules that reduce toxic air pollution from industrial boilers. The boiler MACT rule should easily pass the House this week, but despite recent efforts from Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), similar legislation is not expected to move in the Senate.

The Senate Energy Committee will hold a hearing on October 4 on a new report from the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board's Shale Gas Production Subcommittee.
