Joe Manchin Releases Bill to Speed Up Energy Projects as Lawmakers Balk - WSJ

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D., Ore.) and several Democratic colleagues are pushing Mr. Schumer to keep the spending package and permitting package separate, stating in a letter that environmental issues “should be examined through detailed committee consideration and a robust floor debate separate from the urgent need to see that the government stays open.”
