Yesterday there were 21 bills introduced in the House and Senate. One of those will be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
S 1961 Latest Title: A bill to protect surface water from contamination by chemical storage facilities, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Sen Manchin, Joe, III (D,WV)
I wrote about this bill over a week ago after the initial press release from Sen. Manchin, but we will still have to wait for the bill to be published to see how it attempts to achieve its objectives. There is frequently a disconnect between what those press releases say and what the bill actually attempts to do.
NOTE: Rumors continue to abound about Rep. McCaul’s (R,TX) CFATS authorization bill, but it has not yet been introduced. I suspect that it is being further refined.
