On this week's Capitol Crude, Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Herman Wang slide tackle their way into the bipartisan, comprehensive US energy bill passed out of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee last week. The bill is expected to be the first major US energy policy bill out of Congress since 2007, but does the legislation meet the hype? Was the bill a major letdown? Platts Inside FERC editor Jasmin Melvin and James Koehler with the Berkeley Research Group discuss what's in the bill, its importance and what it means for Congress' energy agenda going forward.
