According to the House Floor Summary for today, the House did not consider HR 5035, the NIST reauthorization bill that I described this weekend. It is still listed on the Majority Leader’s web site for consideration on Monday, July 14th so there is no official reason given for why the bill was not addressed today. I suspect that there was enough concern about the NIST-NSA relationship that was not adequately addressed in this bill to make this slightly more controversial than the Leadership was willing to risk on considering the bill under suspension of the rules.
There is an outside chance that the bill could get added to tomorrow’s session. I suspect that, if I am right about why the bill was not considered today, it will be considered next week under a rule with limited amendments.
