The House debated and voted on 12 amendments to the energy bill on Wednesday night, and have eight more to go before final passage. Several amendments were aimed at stripping out language that would approve the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline (we reported yesterday — incorrectly — that the Keystone language was not in the energy bill, but it is in fact in the energy bill and not in the main transportation bill, H.R. 7).
The House has no other work planned today other than finishing the energy bill.
The Senate has spent the week fighting over which amendments to the bill should be considered.
