Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid rejected a proposal from supporters of a stalled Senate energy bill that would move immigration reform through the regular committee process on a priority basis and allow the energy bill to move forward on the Senate floor.

The proposal would tentatively set action on immigration for November, after the midterm elections — a delay that even some Democrats would welcome.

“Such an idea might have been floated by someone, but as far as I can tell, it’s a nonstarter,” said Jim Manley, a Reid spokesman. “For what it’s worth, I have never heard of fast-tracking something through the regular committee process, especially the Judiciary Committee, where the debates are usually long, sharp and fierce.”

The swift rejection of the potential compromise came a day after the energy reform package was sent to the Environmental Protection Agency for analysis — a sign that the measure’s co-sponsors, Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), have not given up on it.

In a meeting with reporters on Capitol Hill, Kerry said the trio were still “working very hard and constructively to pull pieces back together.”
