Unanimous Consent Request—H.R. 2126by Senator Rob Portman
Posted on 2014-12-15
PORTMAN. I ask unanimous consent that the energy committee be
discharged from further consideration of H.R. 2126 and the Senate
proceed to its immediate consideration; that the bill be read a third
time and passed and the motion to reconsider be considered made and
laid upon the table.
The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. Is there objection? Mr. COBURN. I object.
The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. Objection is heard.
Mr. PORTMAN. Mr. President, this is with regard to the energy legislation that passed the House and has four commonsense, simple provisions we hoped to be able to pass by unanimous consent tonight, and hopefully I will be able to convince my colleagues it is something that is good for American jobs, American business, and for energy efficiency. There are four or five speakers who would like to talk on this. What I would like to do, if I could, is ask them to begin the debate here and then I will wrap it up at the end.
I yield the floor.
The ACTING PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Senator from New Hampshire.
