Yesterday 11 bills were introduced in the House and Senate. Only one of these may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 5769 - To authorize appropriations for the Coast Guard for fiscal year 2015, and for other purposes. Sponsor Rep. Hunter, Duncan D. [R-CA-50]
Back in March the House passed HR 4005 on the same topic. That bill has not been considered by the Senate. Apparently the House and Senate transportation committees have worked out their differences and this new bill reflects a version that should be able to pass in both houses of congress before the session ends.
A quick look at the bill table of content shows no mention of MTSA, TWIC, or chemical transportation safety.
The bill has been added to the list of the bills that are to be considered under suspension of the rules today.
