Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) announced on July 17 that S. 761, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2013, will likely be considered by the full Senate later this month, following the FY14 Transportation and Housing and Urban Development Appropriations bill. An agreement on amendment limits has not been reached. The next day, Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) announced there are a number of amendments being written on the Keystone XL pipeline; Senator John Hoeven (R-ND) said he is willing to forgo an amendment approving the pipeline in exchange for a hearing on the issue.
