May 16, 2012 Full Committee Markup

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 16, 2012 -

Reporting H.R. 4383 Out of Committee (Passed 25-15. View Roll Call Vote)
This bill reforms the process for energy permitting, once a lease is in hand, to encourage the timely development of our federal onshore oil, natural gas, and renewable resources.

Lamborn En Bloc Amendment #1 – Technical Amendment (Agreed to by Voice Vote.)
This amendment makes technical corrections to the underlying legislation

Hanabusa Amendment #004 – Renewable Energy Mandate (Failed 17-24. View Roll Call Vote)
This Amendment sets arbitrary and potentially unattainable requirements for renewable energy consumption by the Federal Government.

Hanabusa Amendment #002 – First Amendment Duplication (Failed 16-25. View Roll Call Vote)
This Amendment is unnecessary and duplicative as it guarantees rights expressly given to citizens of the United States in the Constitution, which the underlying legislation does not violate or amend.

Holt Amendment #001 – Retaining Red Tape (Failed 15-25. View Roll Call Votes)
This Amendment undermines the purpose of the underlying legislation by removing one of the provisions that streamlines government red tape that is slowing energy production on federal lands.
