Both the House and Senate will be in Washington this week. There is only one hearing currently scheduled this week that may be (okay a little bit of a stretch) of interest to readers of this blog; an oversight hearing of DHS S&T.
The House Science, Space and Technology Committee will be holding a hearing on Tuesday on a “A Review of Progress by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science and Technology Directorate”. The sole witness will be Under Secretary Brothers.
On the Floor
There will be two bills of potential interest this week that will be considered under suspension of the rules (limited debate, no amendments and 3/5th majority):
• Concur in the Senate Amendment to HR 623 – DHS Social Media Improvement Act of 2015; and
• HR 3819 – Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2015
The Senate will continue working on S 754 the CISA. I am not going to try to keep up on the details of the amendment process in the Senate with its amendments to amendments processes. I’ll report on the final wording of the bill when it is passed (probably) on Tuesday.
