In non-election year, chairman of House energy panel sounds notes of bipartisanship

What a difference a non-election year can make. Early last August, as House Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R) was fending off a primary challenge from the right, you probably wouldn't have found him touting his efforts at bipartisanship back home in his southwest Michigan district. But yesterday, Upton penned a piece for his local newspaper highlighting his work on a hydropower bill supported by congressional Democrats that streamlines the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's process for permitting all projects that use existing canals, pipelines or other water conduits.
