In late Wednesday votes, members accepted an amendment from Rep. Shelley Moore CapitoShelley Wellons Moore CapitoThis week: House jump-starts effort to prevent shutdown Congress set to ignore Trump's wall request in stopgap measure America is in desperate need of infrastructure investment: Senate highway bill a step in the right direction MORE (R-W.Va.) to require the EPA to analyze the impact of certain actions on employment levels and require a hearing when an action has more than a de minims impact. This was approved in a 268-152.

Members did accept two Democratic amendments by voice vote. One from Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.) clarifies that nothing in the bill can limit the EPA's authority to regulate a pipeline that crosses a streamed.

The other, from Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii), requires the EPA to submit to Congress a report on any increase in pathogenic microorganisms in waters regulated by a state under the bill. Republicans said they would accept the amendment if it were altered to require EPA to also report on any reduction in these microorganisms.

But more substantive amendments offered by Democrats were all turned away, after which the House moved to vote on final passage of the bill. Amendments that were turned away were from:
