Jan. 29, 2015 — On Wednesday, the House passed H.R. 351 (277-133).

The bill seeks to speed up the approval process by requiring the Department of Energy to rule on permit applications within 30 days of receiving a completed environmental review. Among the many dozens of companies involved in financing and operating the 27 proposed facilities, nine have political action committees (PAC).

How much money have members of Congress voting 'YES' received from these nine companies?
