  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) The Federal Government is the largest energy user 
        in the United States.
          (2) Reducing energy and water use in Federal

          (2) for each of fiscal years 2020 through 2030, 
        improve water use efficiency and management, including 
        stormwater management, at facilities of the agency by 
        reducing agency water consumption intensity--
                  (A) by reducing the potable water consumption 
                by 54 percent by fiscal year 2030, relative to 
                the potable water consumption of the agency in 
                fiscal year 2007, through reductions of 2 
                percent each fiscal year (as measured in 
                gallons per gross square foot);
                  (B) by reducing the industrial, landscaping, 
                and agricultural water consumption of the 
                agency, as compared to a baseline of that 
                consumption by the agency in fiscal year 2010, 
                through reductions of 2 percent each fiscal 
                year (as measured in gallons); and
                  (C) by installing appropriate infrastructure 
                features on federally owned property to improve 
                stormwater and wastewater management.

SEC. 1413. USE OF ENERGY AND WATER EFFICIENCY MEASURES IN FEDERAL 
                    BUILDINGS.

  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) Performance contracting is a private financing 
        tool with guaranteed energy savings and has been used 
        by the Federal Government for nearly 30 years.
          (2) Energy savings performance contracts and utility 
        energy service contacts allow the Government to invest 
        in infrastructure using private sector financing and 
        expertise, with a guarantee of results.
          (3) Use of performance contracting has saved the 
        Government and taxpayers more than $18,000,000,000.
          (4) By law, performance contracts are guaranteed to 
        provide savings to Federal agencies.
          (5) On average, performance contracts achieve savings 
        in excess of the contractual and statutory guarantee.
          (6) In a fiscally constrained environment, 
        performance contracting helps to address the Federal 
        Government's backlog of maintenance and supplement 
        scarce operations and maintenance dollars.
          (7) The House of Representatives, the Senate, and the 
        Office of Management and Budget have all acted to 
        recognize the value of performance contracts by 
        providing distinct budgetary consideration of them; in 
        the 115th Congress, the House of Representatives 
        included section 5109 in H. Con. Res. 71 to enable the 
        greater use of performance contracting and to recognize 
        their full cost savings benefits.
          (8) Federal agencies are not taking full advantage of 
        the cost-effective energy efficiency measures that are 
        available and documented.
          (9) Using performance contracts to carry out such 
        energy efficiency measures would benefit taxpayers, the 
        economy, and the environment.
  (b) Reports.--Section 548(b) of the National Energy 
Conservation Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 8258(b)) is amended--
          (1) in paragraph (3), by striking ``and'' at the end;

SEC. 3115. NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES STUDY ON CARBON CAPTURE 
                    TECHNOLOGY.

  (a) In General.--The Secretary of Energy shall enter into an 
agreement with the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, 
and Medicine to conduct a study evaluating the efficacy of 
carbon capture and storage technology by industry in reducing 
emissions and the cost-effectiveness of such technologies. Such 
study shall include a description of the following:
          (1) Analysis of the effectiveness of emissions 
        reductions and cost through implementation of carbon 
        capture as compared to transitioning to other low-
        emissions technologies.
          (2) Differences in performance of various carbon 
        capture technologies and storage methods, including the 
        net amount of carbon dioxide that can be permanently 
        sequestered, the cost (in terms of dollar per ton 
        captured/sequestered) of each technology, and the 
        potential to increase the net amount of carbon dioxide 
        captured/sequestered and lower operational costs.
          (3) Barriers, in terms of cost, infrastructure, 
        geology, aquifers, and markets, to ensuring permanent 
        carbon storage including both point of source capture 
        and removal from the atmosphere of captured carbon 
        dioxide.
          (4) Analysis of the lifecycle emissions associated 
        with carbon capture technologies, including 
        construction and operation of the carbon capture 
        technology, as well as transport, processing, and 
        injection of carbon dioxide, including the permanence 
        of carbon storage and sequestration, and strategies to 
        reduce those emissions. This should include the amount 
        of carbon dioxide emitted from a facility outfitted 
        with carbon capture technologies that is permanently 
        sequestered compared to the amount of carbon dioxide 
        emitted by the carbon capture process itself.
          (5) Evaluation of the impact of carbon capture 
        technologies on air pollution, including particulate 
        emissions and ozone precursors, with specific analysis 
        on the impacts on communities historically overburdened 
        with pollution, including rural communities.
  (b) Report.--The agreement under subsection (a) shall specify 
that, not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of this 
Act, the National Academy of Sciences shall submit to Congress 
a report containing the results and findings of study 
authorized under this section.
  Page 5, in the table of contents, after the matter related to 
section 3114, insert the following:

        production, storage, gathering, processing, and 
        handling operations.
          ``(3) Flare and flaring.--The terms `flare' and 
        `flaring' mean the intentional and controlled burning 
        of gas that occurs in the course of oil and gas 
        operations to limit release of gas to the atmosphere.
          ``(4) Fugitive release.--The term `fugitive release' 
        means the unintentional and uncontrolled release of gas 
        into the atmosphere in the course of oil and gas 
        operations.
          ``(5) Gas capture plan.--The term `gas capture plan' 
        means a plan that includes specific goals, including

        of gas into the atmosphere in the course of oil and gas 
        operations.''.
  (b) Clerical Amendment.--The table of contents in section 1 
of such Act is amended by inserting after the item relating to 
section 117 the following:
``Sec. 118. Gas waste reduction and enhancement of gas measuring and 
          reporting.''.
  (c) Updates.--The Secretary of the Interior shall update the 
regulations required by the amendments made by this section 
when the Secretary determines appropriate, but no less 
frequently than once every ten years, to reflect new 
information regarding gas waste, the impacts of that waste, and 
the availability of technologies and performance measures to 
reduce gas waste.
  (d) Application of Prior Rule.--The final rule entitled 
``Waste Prevention, Production Subject to Royalties, and 
Resource Conservation'', as published in the Federal Register 
November 18, 2016 (81 Fed. Reg. 83008), is hereby reinstated, 
and each of its provisions shall apply unless and until the 
effective date of a subsequent final rule promulgated under the 
amendment made by subsection (a), or promulgated under another 
applicable authority, that replaces or repeals such provision.
  (e) Assessment of Venting, Flaring, and Fugitive Releases.--
Not later than 180 days after the end of the 1-year period 
beginning on the date the Secretary of the Interior first 
receives data submitted under the requirements established 
under subsection (b) of section 118 of the Federal Oil and Gas 
Royalty Management Act of 1982, as amended by this section, the 
Secretary shall--
          (1) submit a report to Congress describing--
                  (A) the volume of fugitive releases, and gas 
                consumed or lost by venting and flaring, from 
                covered operations (as those terms are used in 
                such section); and
                  (B) additional regulations the Secretary 
                considers would help further curtail venting, 
                flaring, and fugitive releases, or the rational 
                basis for not issuing such additional 
                regulations if the Secretary considers 
                additional regulations would not be appropriate 
                to further curtail venting, flaring, and 
                fugitive releases; and
          (2) issue regulations described in the report 
        required by paragraph (1)(B) not later than 1 year 
        after the date of the submission of the report.

SECTION 3115. CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL TASK FORCE AND REPORT.

  (a) Report.--Not later than 180 days after the date of 
enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Energy (referred to in 
this section as the ``Secretary''), in consultation with the 
head of any other relevant Federal agency, shall prepare a 
report that--
