Sen. Joe Manchin Tuesday asked Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to remove energy permitting language from a government funding bill, after he failed to secure enough support for the proposal. 

“It is unfortunate that members of the United States Senate are allowing politics to put the energy security of our nation at risk,” Manchin, D-W.Va., said in a statement. “A failed vote on something as critical as comprehensive permitting reform only serves to embolden leaders like Putin who wish to see America fail.”

MANCHIN ‘DIDN’T EXPECT’ REPUBLICANS TO JOIN BERNIE SANDERS IN OPPOSITION TO ENERGY PERMITTING BILL

Manchin added: “For that reason and my firmly held belief that we should never come to the brink of a government shutdown over politics, I have asked Majority Leader Schumer to remove the permitting language from the Continuing Resolution we will vote on this evening.”

Manchin made a deal last month with Schumer, D-N.Y., to vote for Democrats’ social spending and taxation bill in exchange for Schumer bringing energy permitting reform for a Senate vote. They intended to attach a permitting reform proposal from Manchin to a “continuing resolution” to temporarily fund the government until after the elections. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., promised a Senate vote on energy permitting reform to Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., earlier this year in exchange for his support of the "Inflation Reduction Act."

JOE MANCHIN SLAMS ‘POLITICS IN WASHINGTON,’ SAYS MIDTERM ELECTIONS WILL BE A ‘TOSS-UP’

But Republicans angry at Manchin for backing the social spending and taxation bill, and progressives who don’t want to make energy projects easier, joined forces against the bill. They had enough votes to prevent the funding bill from getting over the 60-vote filibuster threshold as long as Manchin’s proposal was there. 

Manchin multiple times lamented the unlikely “bedfellows.”

Schumer put the blame squarely on Republicans. 

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor Tuesday that he still intends for energy permitting reform to pass before the end of the year.

“Senate Republicans have made very clear they will block legislation to fund the government if it includes bipartisan permitting reform,” Schumer said. “They’ve chosen to obstruct instead of work in a bipartisan way to achieve something they’ve long claimed they wanted to do.”

“Sen. Manchin, myself and others will continue to have conversations about the best way to ensure responsible permitting reform is passed before the end of the year,” Schumer added.
