WASHINGTON, D.C. – The committee kicked off the week with two of our very own members taking over the committee’s Instagram account. The big week continued, as the committee had 6 energy bills pass the House Floor that will advance our nation’s energy infrastructure. Our hearing schedule was jam packed, with #SubOversight as the first hearing of the week where members discussed challenges of the 340 B Program and #SubEnergy kicked off its “Powering America” series with a hearing on electricity markets. On Wednesday, #SubDCCP unanimously passed bipartisan self-driving legislation that prioritizes consumer protection while fostering innovation. We wrapped up the week with a #SubHealth hearing on 11 bipartisan bills to strengthen Medicare.
The committee had a jam-packed week, which included hearings before #SubOversight, #SubEnergy, and #SubHealth, in addition to a #SubDCCP markup.
