Shelley Moore CapitoShelley Wellons Moore CapitoPress beat lawmakers to keep trophy in annual softball game Bipartisan senators propose forcing EPA to set drinking water standard for 'forever chemicals' August recess under threat as yearly spending bills pile up 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:
