In addition to the passage of HR 4007 yesterday two other homeland security related bills that have been previously discussed in this blog were also passed under the suspension of the rules process. The two bills were passed with recorded votes that were substantially bipartisan.
The two bills are:
Both bills had substantial bipartisan support in the House Homeland Security Committee and that was reflected in the final votes on the floor of the House. HR 4263 passed by a vote of 375 to 19, with the opposition coming from Republicans. HR 4289 passed by a vote of 393 to 0.
If these bills get taken up by the Senate it will probably be under a unanimous consent process at the end of a slow day.
