COMING TUESDAY: A Senate committee will review bipartisan energy efficiency legislation that could prove to be a bellwether of congressional appetite on energy issues.

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) will trot out their bill during a Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee legislative hearing on Tuesday.

The hearing will also delve into a trio of hydropower bills expected to pass the panel at some point.

The Shaheen-Portman effort likely will, too.

It’s largely the same as a version that passed the committee with broad support last session.
