Senate appropriators have released their draft committee report accompanying the FY 2015 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Bill.  As previously noted in FYI #127, this bill was scheduled for action by the full Senate Appropriations Committee in mid-June, but was pulled from consideration because of concerns about an expected amendment to the bill to restrict EPA’s ability to regulate carbon emissions from existing power plants.  No new date has been scheduled.
