There were 24 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday. Only one will probably be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 4293 Latest Title: To authorize the approval of natural gas pipelines and establish deadlines and expedite permits for certain natural gas gathering lines on Federal land and Indian land. Sponsor: Rep Cramer, Kevin (R,ND)
This is probably related to natural gas recovery efforts in the Bakken formation. It could have additional impacts in other areas where advanced oil recovery techniques are also producing significant amounts of natural gas which currently have to be flared.
