"House Passes Russia Sanctions Deal With Oil, Gas Fix"

"The House easily passed bipartisan legislation on Tuesday to expand sanctions on Russia and limit the Trump administration's ability to lift them.

The legislation comes after lawmakers addressed a series of concerns oil and gas companies raised about the package, which they said would limit the extent to which American and Russian energy firms could interact.

The latest version of the bill clarifies that only Russian energy export pipelines can be sanctioned. It also establishes that the ban on U.S. investments in deepwater, shale or Arctic offshore projects applies only if there are Russian entities with an ownership interest of at least 33 percent."
