WASHINGTON — Here’s how state senators voted on major issues during the legislative week that ended Friday. There were no votes in the House.

Oil and gas industry emissions: By a vote of 52 for and 42 against, the Senate on Wednesday passed and sent to the House a measure, SJ Res 14, to restore the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to regulate methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. The legislation would nullify a Trump administration action that scrapped regulations imposed by the Obama administration. Methane, the principal component of natural gas, is a potent contributor to climate change that can escape into the atmosphere during oil and gas production, transmission and storage. To restore the Obama policy and EPA’s authority to potentially write additional rules, Democrats are using the Congressional Review Act, which gives a new Congress and president a window of time to legislatively cancel regulations from the closing days of the previous administration. Republican lawmakers and President Donald Trump used the procedure 14 times in 2017 to wipe out Obama administration actions.

Voting yes: Patty Murray, D

Not voting: Maria Cantwell, D

Water systems funding: By a vote of 89 for and two against, the Senate on Thursday passed a bipartisan bill, S 914, that calls for spending roughly $35 billion over five years to improve drinking water and wastewater treatment infrastructure, primarily by making Environmental Protection Agency grants and loans to states, communities and tribes to expand and upgrade outdated systems. The legislation emphasizes improving water systems in rural and poor communities and would help water systems resist damage from the increase in severe weather attributed to climate change. The measure includes $710 million to reduce lead in drinking water. An additional $550 million annually is earmarked to help bring more households onto public water and sewer systems or to install or upgrade their own systems.

Undersecretary of defense: By a vote of 49 for and 45 against, the Senate on Tuesday confirmed Colin Kahl to be undersecretary for policy, the third-ranking civilian position in the Department of Defense. Kahl, 49, was deputy assistant secretary of defense for the Middle East and later national security adviser to the vice president during the Obama administration. His nomination drew criticism from Republicans who argued that his postings on Twitter indicated he lacked the right temperament for a position of responsibility.

EPA deputy administrator: By a vote of 52 for and 42 against, the Senate on Tuesday confirmed Janet McCabe as deputy administrator, the second-ranking position at the Environmental Protection Agency.
