Senators are working to rally Republican support for limiting debate on the Shaheen-Portman energy-efficiency bill if they are assured votes on certain amendments. "I've begun to develop this kind of discussion with senators around the idea that there ought to be an opportunity for senators to offer their amendments, and when senators see that they get a chance to offer their amendment, they'll vote for cloture," said Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore. The move comes after a different tactic to advance the bill failed earlier this week.
