S. 1392, Shaheen-Portman Bill: Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2013


S. 1392-the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act of 2013-was introduced on\r July 30, 2013. Often referred to as the Shaheen-Portman bill, it is a trimmed-down version of S.\r 761. It contains provisions for building energy codes, industrial energy efficiency, federal\r agencies, and budget offsets. The bill contains voluntary provisions and was designed to be\r deficit-neutral. To date, virtually all debate related to the bill has been focused on floor\r amendments.\r The bill was reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources (SENR) on a\r 19-3 vote. On August 1, 2013, a motion to proceed was introduced and amendments began to be\r filed. On September 11, 2013, a unanimous consent agreement on the motion launched floor\r action. By September 19, 2013, 125 amendments had been proposed. Of that total, 75 directly\r address energy efficiency policy, 23 address "other" energy and carbon emissions policy areas,\r and 27 address non-energy policy areas.\r Amendments subject to controversy address five policy areas: fossil fuel use by federal buildings,\r carbon emissions regulation, regional haze regulation, Keystone XL Pipeline, and the Affordable\r Care Act (ACA, P.L. 111-148 as amended). Only the Keystone XL Pipeline and one ACA\r amendment have been the subject of major floor debate on S. 1392.\r Bills: S.1392
