Senators Murkowski (R-AK) and Cantwell (D-WA) on June 29 reintroduced the Energy and Natural Resources Act (ENRA) (S. 1460), the successor to the bipartisan legislation from the previous Congress.

ENRA has 11 titles focused on 1) efficiency, 2) infrastructure, 3) supply, 4) accountability, 5) conservation, 6) federal land management, 7) National Park System management, 8) sportsmen’s issues, 9) water infrastructure, 10) natural hazards, and 11) Indian energy.

The bill was placed directly on the Senate calendar for expedited floor consideration.

While ENRA is not on the list of Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s priority bills for consideration before the start of the August recess, committee staff are prepared for floor consideration whenever the bill is called up. The details of the floor amendment process are still under discussion.
