There were 42 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday. Along with a proposed declaration of war against the Islamic State, and a number of Syrian refugee bills there was one bill that may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 4057 To amend title 18, United States Code, to establish a criminal violation for using false communications with the intent to create an emergency response, and for other purposes. Rep. Clark, Katherine M. [D-MA-5]
HR 4057 would seem to address a local problem that is typically addressed by State and local laws. Unless, of course, it dealt specifically with Federal emergency response organizations. This is not likely to see further coverage in the blog unless something interesting is being included in that “and for other purposes” tacked on at the end.
