"Senate Hope For Permit Deal Alive After DOA House Energy Bill"

"Senate Democrats are still holding out hope for a deal on permitting reform, but a House Republican energy bill is not going to do the trick.

On Wednesday, Democrats in the upper chamber said they found some promise in the GOP package, H.R. 1, even if they dismissed it as a nonstarter.

“I think there’s a realistic chance for compromise, but we’re not going to enact that,” said Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii).

Senate Environment and Public Works ranking member Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) said informal talks had already begun."
