H.R. 2457: J. Bennett Johnston Waterway Hydropower Extension Act of 2017

Jun 12, 2017 at 6:59 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2457 (115th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 2457 authorizes the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, upon the request of the licensees for the projects numbered 12756 (Red River Lock and Dam No. 3 Project, Colfax, Louisiana), and 12757 and 12758 (Red River Lock and Dam No. 4 Project, Coushatta, Louisiana), to extend the time period during which the licensees are required to commence construction for up to three consecutive two-year periods from the date of the expiration of the original extensions.
