"Clean Energy, Ethanol Concerns Dog Debt Ceiling Bill"

"Republicans leaders are eager to ram their debt ceiling package through the House this week, even with discomfort among some members with the bill’s energy and environment provisions.

Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) expressed confidence the legislation — which is chock full of language on energy, environmental reviews and regulations — will get the 218 votes necessary to clear the chamber despite the GOP’s tight margins.

“We will hold a vote this week, and we will pass it, and we will send it to the Senate,” McCarthy said on Fox News this weekend as his team whipped votes in favor of legislation designed to get President Joe Biden to the negotiating table on the debt ceiling."
