House Passes Bill to Expedite Timeline for LNG Exports

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6, a bill to, among other purposes, expedite approval for the export of LNG to World Trade Organization countries.  The bill passed 266-150, and it would reduce the timeline for DOE approval from 90 days to 30 days following the conclusion of the NEPA environmental review of the LNG facilities.  The bill now must be considered, and voted on, by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
