Policy changes to watch for in Republican controlled Congress

-A A +A

Energy is going to be front and center when the Republicans take control of both houses.
The past six years have seen taxpayer dollars poured into green-energy projects that have raised electricity rates. Meanwhile, Republicans have touted the job creation and economic impact available through America’s abundant fossil-fuel resources.
Big changes in energy policy are in the works because a wealthy country is better able to do things right. A growing economy needs energy that is efficient, effective and economical — which is why countries like China and India will not limit energy availability and why Republicans want to expand access in the United States.
What energy policies should we watch?
Keystone pipeline
• Post-election, the Keystone pipeline has suddenly leapt to the front of the lame-duck-legislation line.
• The question remains whether the White House will approve the bill, though spokesman Josh Earnest hinted at an Obama veto. A veto would further anger his union supporters. With many Democrats already on board and a push for more support from union leadership, the new Congress may be able to pass it again — this time with a veto-proof majority.
