Fred Upton Eyes 2015 GOP Control for Energy Policy

The House has pummeled the Senate with dozens of energy bills that lie dormant, including a largely matched energy efficiency measure that has stalled despite broad bipartisan support. All that will change next year, according to House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich.“I believe that time will come next year, the time will be right to get these policies moving,” Upton said Tuesday at an Energy Information Administration conference.

From his view, predictions that Republicans will retain a majority in the House and take control of the Senate are the harbingers of a new era of energy policy.

“We’re going to have an opportunity and a challenge for us to govern,” Upton said.

In such a Senate prospects would be much brighter for measures such as a bill the House passed last month to expedite exports of liquefied natural gas, Upton said, without mentioning the veto power resting at the White House.

Newly proposed EPA carbon emissions regulations, which are a key component of President Barack Obama’s climate change policy and are already in the cross hairs of measures in both chambers, would no doubt remain a main target under GOP control.

“What we don’t need is a climate policy that will actually hamstring our economy and make energy more expensive,” Upton said, identifying his priorities as energy transmission, permitting, electric generating diversity and export policy.
