Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., won’t let a gov­ern­ment shut­down or le­gis­lat­ive hol­dups de­rail an en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency bill that was pulled from the Sen­ate floor last month.

Shaheen an­nounced Tues­day that she’s plan­ning a meet­ing this week to dis­cuss ways to ad­vance the le­gis­la­tion with bill co-spon­sor Sen. Rob Port­man, R-Ohio, and Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, ac­cord­ing to The Hill. The meet­ing will also in­clude a num­ber of House law­makers.

“We hope to find a way for­ward that will not just in­clude the Sen­ate but how to get something through the House,” Shaheen said.
