The Research and Technology Subcommittee of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee announced this evening that it would be holding a markup hearing for HR 4186, the Frontiers in Innovation, Research, Science, and Technology Act of 2014. No I haven’t mentioned this bill because it was apparently introduced today. No copy of the bill is available yet and the hearing is not even listed on the Committee web site.
I hope that the Subcommittee members have had more notice than this, or there won’t be any amendments to mark-up the bill with. I'm assuming that the bill was introduced by the Committee Chair, Lamar Smith (R,TX) or the Subcommittee Chair (R,IN), or maybe both.
