House Passes Broad Energy Package

On September 24, the House of Representatives passed a $135 billion legislative package that covers a wide range of energy policy from energy efficiency, renewable energy, electric grid and cybersecurity, transportation, and environmental justice. The bill also includes a section that would require a phase-down of hydrofluorocarbon. The bill passed by a 220 to 185 vote, with seven Republicans voting for it and 18 Democrats voting against the measure. The White House announced that it would veto the measure if it reached President Trump's desk. A section-by-section of the bill can be found here.
