Bills Introduced – 3-14-23

Yesterday with the Senate in Washington and the House meeting in pro forma session, there were 80 bills introduced. One of those bills may receive additional attention here:

HR 1 Lower Energy Costs Act Scalise, Steve [Rep.-R-LA-1]

This bill will be a major symbolic effort of House Republicans in this session. It will certainly be passed in the House on a straight party line vote, but will not be considered in the Senate. There is nothing currently in the text of the bill that would normally be covered in this blog, but I suspect that there may be additions to the bill made in committee dealing with issues of interest here.

This bill does show how generous the Republican leadership can be in their definition of ‘single topic’ in their requirement that a bill contain only a single topic. This bill is currently only 175 pages long, but the version that comes up for a vote on the House floor is likely to be much larger.
