Yesterday the House passed HR 4005, the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2014. A bipartisan voice vote brought the consideration of the bill to a close after just about 45 minutes.
There was very little actual debate during the consideration of the bill. Most of the discussion was more praise for the bipartisan leadership of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for their ability to work together to craft this legislation.
The only question about this becoming law is when or if Sen. Reid (D, NV) will bring the bill to the floor for a vote. I expect that he will and probably well before the summer recess.
