Bills Introduced – 12-11-14

As the last week (hopefully) of the 113th Congress finishes up there were 54 bills introduced yesterday in the House and Senate. Two of those (at any other time of the session) might be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 5855 To require a report on procurement supply chain vulnerabilities within the Department of Defense. Sponsor - ep. Grayson, Alan [D-FL-9]

HR 5868 - To provide for a study by the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies on the impact of diverting certain freight rail traffic to avoid urban areas, and for other purposes. Sponsor - Rep. Ellison, Keith [D-MN-5]


Not much chance of either of these coming to the floor in the House much less getting to the President, so I doubt that I’ll even bother trying to report on them once their printed.

Why no mention of the recent CFATS authorization?

I mentioned it in passing on Twitter, but I want a chance to do an in depth look at the bill here and I just haven't had time to read it in close detail to see what was changed in the last minute wrangling in the Senate. Hopefully this weekend.
