The US Senate could vote this month on a pair of hydropower bills and an energy efficiency bill, Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, said May 8.

These bills were approved by Wyden's Energy and Natural Resources Committee on Wednesday and Wyden said Senate leaders have indicated these bills could be up for a full Senate vote before the congressional recess at the end of the month.

The committee on Wednesday unanimously approved the Hydropower Improvement Act of 2013, S. 545, and its House companion bill, H.R. 267.

The bills, sponsored by Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, the ranking Republican on Wyden's energy committee, and Representatives Cathy McMorris Rogers, Republican-Washington, and Diana DeGette, Democrat-Colorado, would give the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission new authority for preliminary permits.
