Congressional Hearings – Week of 3-9-14

The government spending game is now in full swing in the Congress. Lots of hearings will be held concerning the President’s FY 2015 budget that was submitted to Congress last week. We will also have another chemical safety hearing, this one on a potential TSCA replacement.

Budget Hearings

Rather than trying to write a generic description of each of these hearings I’ll put the links in the table below. The ‘Oversight’ columns refer to the committees in each house of congress that are responsible for the oversight of the listed agency. Dates without links have already been held and were referenced in an earlier blog. It should go without saying that I am only listing those agencies that I routinely track spending on in this blog.

House Appropriations
House Oversight
Senate Appropriations
Senate Oversight




TSCA Hearing

The Environment and the Economy Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee will be holding a hearing on Wednesday on the Chemicals in Commerce Act. This draft legislation is a House version of bill that would renew-redo the current TSCA legislation. There is no witness list published yet.

I don’t cover TSCA issues much in this blog, but this will be an important hearing for the chemical industry.
