The Senate’s consideration of S. 2012, the Energy Policy Modernization Act, has been stalled for weeks over how best to address the ongoing water challenge in Flint, Michigan. Early this week it appeared an agreement on Flint aid had been reached that would allow S. 2012 to move forward. Unfortunately, just a few hours later the story broke that the bill is now being held up over an amendment that allows revenues from oil and gas exploration off the Atlantic coast to be shared by the federal government and the states where the exploration would occur. The NAM supports this amendment and would like to see it get a vote.
