HR 2868 Hearing Update 07-20-09
Today the House Energy and Commerce Committee has the Thursday hearing about HR 2868 posted on their web site. The Energy and Environment will be conducting the hearing at 10:00 am. Apparently the hearing will cover two bills, HR 2868 and a bill that has yet to be submitted; The Drinking Water System Security Act of 2009. No other information is currently available on that bill so it is not clear if it is a chemical security bill for drinking water facilities or a bill focused on the security of the drinking water. There is no official listing of witnesses available on the Committee website, but I have heard that Sue Armstrong from DHS will be appearing as a witness.
