On April 25, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he plans on considering S. 761, the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act (“Shaheen-Portman”), on the Senate floor but does not know when it will be brought to the floor. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee is scheduled to markup the bill on May 8. A version of the bill was approved by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee in the 112th Congress but was never considered by the full chamber. Shaheen-Portman, named after sponsors Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), would promote energy efficiency upgrades in commercial and federal buildings and in building codes.
