Well, the Senate finally completed its speechifying and adjourned for the day which allowed the admin folks a chance to get the introduced legislation at least listed. There were only six bills introduced in the very lengthy day but one of them may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
S 1804 Latest Title: A bill to amend title 49, United States Code, to direct the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security (Transportation Security Administration) to establish an Aviation Security Advisory Committee, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Sen Tester, Jon (D,MT)
Actually, I suspect that this bill is actually a companion bill to HR 1204 which was just passed in the House last week. Then again, Tester may have been less than satisfied with the language in the House version and wanted to start fresh with his own language. We’ll see when the bill is published by the GPO.
