According to an L.A. Times article, the lobbying firm of Bracewell & Giuliani convinced representatives Gene Green and Chet Edwards to pressure Nancy Pelosi to make this bill friendlier to the oil industry:

Green said the process worked because Pelosi took the unusual step of calling on "energy state legislators to tell her what we could agree to." Green particularly was a point of contact for the industry and for staff. On Jan. 9, he held a private meeting of about a dozen Congress members and 20 to 30 lobbyists — including those representing every major oil company — to go through the legislation.
