This past week, Congress was focused on reviewing the president’s proposed Fiscal Year 2014 budget and nominees for several cabinet positions, and we also saw the introduction of the Shaheen-Portman energy efficiency bill that many feel could be enacted this congress. On Wednesday of this week, Senators Coons and Moran are expected to introduce another bill that many believe could be enacted in the 113th Congress – the Master Limited Partnership Parity Act. Sens. Chris Coons and Jerry Moran will be joined by Sens. Stabenow (D-MI) and Murkowski (R-AK). The bill will also be introduced in the House of Representatives by Reps. Ted Poe (R-TX), Mike Thompson (D-CA), Peter Welch (D-VT), and Chris Gibson (R-NY). Also this week, the full House is scheduled to consider a bill, H.R. 527, the Responsible Helium Administration and Stewardship Act, which would privative helium reserves currently under control of the federal government.
