Committee Mark Up of Senate Energy Bill Coming Soon

As reported in this post over at the Ocean Renewable Energy Coalition website, the committee mark-up of the energy bill is coming soon. If passed, the Energy Bill may have implications for the ocean energy industry - hopefully in the form of treatment for ocean renewables that's on par with other renewables. In addition, the energy legislation may address the Department of Interior's authority to lease the Outer Continental Shelf for alternative energy uses.
