1. ENERGY POLICY:
House energy week to feature votes on LNG, offshore drilling, pipelines, efficiency
Think of it as shark week for the energy and environment set. The House this week is planning to focus its attention on a series of bills to promote offshore oil drilling, pipeline construction, liquefied natural gas exports and energy efficiency in what has become a regular tradition under Republicans of setting aside a specified "energy week" to focus attention on the issues -- and score political points.
