Index to the current issue:

In the attached issue. . .

* SENATE PANEL OKAYS RIDERLESS MONEY BILL.  Well, almost riderless, compared to measure approved by House committee.  Senate committee includes extra $900M for emergency wildfires.  House panel rejects Dems’ attacks.

Page 1

* FASTER O&G APPROVALS GIVEN SUPPORT.  By House GOP, by royalty committee and, most important, by BLM in form of memo pushing quick actions.

Page 7

* BIG FED REORGANIZATION NEARS.  Always a chance OMB will seek to move FS to DoI. Meanwhile, Zinke is trying to transfer troops to the field.

* SENATE FARM BILL LESS CONTENTIOUS.  Than House in forest policies.  Does not promote hazardous fuels CXs, exempt Alaska from roadless rule.

Page 11

* SENATE GOING EASY ON DOD PROVISIONS.  Unlike House would not yet set mining permit deadlines, speed DoD withdrawals and ban sage-grouse listing.

Page 13

* COURT MAINTAINS STAY OF METHANE RULE.  Appeals panel agrees with O&G industry, for now.  But Tenth Circuit keeps lawsuit alive, for now.

Page 16

* ANWR STILL ON FAST TRACK; DEMS DISAGREE.  BLM does not extend EIS scoping period, keeps ball rolling.  Dems fail to block in approps bill.
