"Possible consideration of energy legislation," was how the legislative update Sunday from House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer described the situation.
While the House tries to figure out what's next on energy, look for the Senate to do the same, but not immediately.
Senators will duke it out this week over some parliamentary slowdowns involving a global AIDS bill. Maybe after that, we'll start to see some action on energy in that chamber.
Lawmakers are due to leave for a summer break in early August. According to my calendar, that's just around the corner.
