The problem with doing a hearing post as early as I did it this last weekend is that I might miss late posted hearing. The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will hold a markup hearing tomorrow that will address HR 4005, the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2014. At least two other bills will also be considered (HR 3676 and HR 1378) as well as some GSA related resolutions. Apparently the Committee leadership does not expect there to be much discussion about HR 4005, a sure sign that the bill was appropriately vetted by the Staff.
I noted this weekend that HR 4005 was on the fast track for consideration and this quick markup certainly supports that conclusion.
