With the House and Senate out of town for the week we still manage to get two bills introduced in the House this week. One is a biggie for readers of this blog since it touches on chemical security, cybersecurity, pipeline security; well just say it… it’s a homeland security bill. Infact HR 2217 is the FY 2014 DHS funding bill.
HR 2217: Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2014 Sponsor: Rep Carter, John R. (R,TX) House Reports: 113-91
You know that a bill is high priority when it is introduced with committee report during recess and the House Rules Committee has a rule hearing scheduled the first day back in session.
More info on the bill when I get finished reading it.
BTW: The other bill, HR 2216 was the military construction bill and it will share the Monday hearing.
