Schumer has pledged to attach Manchin's proposal to a stopgap funding bill, called a continuing resolution, that must be passed by the end of the month in order to avert a government shutdown.Senators are set to vote Tuesday evening on a procedural motion to advance the continuing resolution.Over the last 8 years, I have witnessed both state and federal agencies try on numerous occasions to short circuit and pervert the very laws and policies that we all depend upon to protect our homes, farms, and communities from devastating environmental destruction.If the version with Manchin's proposal fails to pass, Schumer may choose to strip it down until it does in order to keep the government running—just six weeks before November's midterm elections.If the version with Manchin's proposal fails to pass, Schumer may choose to strip it down until it does in order to keep the government running—just six weeks before November's midterm elections.Manchin told The Washington Post Sunday he is"very optimistic" that he can secure the 60 votes needed to pass the measure, and that he already has at least 40 Democratic votes.Fortunately, the 4th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals has vacated numerous, illegal and faulty permits and stood up for the rule of law.Sen.

Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Joe Manchin (D-W.Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), who introduced her own permitting bill, said last week that she would instead support Manchin's measure.), is trying to change the law and gut these bedrock environmental laws.People opposed to Manchin's bill are being urged to sign petitions and contact their members of Congress to tell them to reject the proposal and instead pass the Environmental Justice for All Act , a measure aimed at ensuring effective public notification and review of new energy projects.People opposed to Manchin's bill are being urged to sign petitions and contact their members of Congress to tell them to reject the proposal and instead pass the Environmental Justice for All Act , a measure aimed at ensuring effective public notification and review of new energy projects."Our elected congressional representatives cannot bless a backroom deal brokered by fossil fuel industry lobbyists that promises untold damage to American communities like mine by denying them a voice in the permitting process for polluting industries," Maury Johnson, a West Virginia organic farmer impacted by the Mountain Valley Pipeline, in an opinion piece published by Common Dreams Saturday.NEPA gives communities and other affected citizens say in extremely important decisions, such as when a dangerous pipeline is proposed in your neighborhood or when a massive, costly freeway is proposed to cross a critical water resource or other fragile areas.

Manchin suggests lawmakers will face regret if they don’t back his energy permitting proposalSen. Joe Manchin III continued to pitch his energy permitting bill Sunday as the solution to America’s domestic energy needs, arguing in the face of bipartisan opposition that lawmakers would one day look back with regret if they kill his bid to streamline energy projects. The West Virginia canary chirps while SenSchumer, InflationReductionAct under his arm, finds those high pitched notes no longer impinges his hearing. tt:Sen_JoeManchin ckchumley maggieNYT Pretty sure we’ll all experience regret if lawmakers do back it, Sen_JoeManchin. Wait, aren’t you the majority?

Trump can't declassify documents by thinking about it: GOP Sen. John BarrassoBarrasso joins other GOP senators who have rejected the former president's declassification comments. It’s amazing this even needs to be said Does this even need to be said? That's not what he said. He danced around it. ''I’m on the Foreign Relations Committee — we deal with classified information all of the time — and are always very careful. I don’t know anything about the rules for when a president declassifies documents and information.'

Sen. Sullivan signs letter with other Republicans denouncing proposed federal protections for transgender athletesAlaska Sen. Dan Sullivan joined other Republicans in Congress in signing a letter to the Department of Education decrying a proposed Title IX rule.

We should stick with protecting our endangered abortion rights and same-sex marriage equality.
