This afternoon the House Rules Committee met to determine which of the amendments proposed for HR 22 would be allowed to be offered on the floor of the House tomorrow. As I added to yesterday’s post there were a total of 29 amendments added to the rule for the consideration of HR 22.
Of the seven amendments that I described in yesterday’s post as being of specific interest to readers of this blog, only seven were include on the list of 29 amendments that may be offered on the floor. They are:
21. Jackson Lee (TX): Provides a report on the Internet of Things (IoT) and its potential to improve transportation services to the elderly and persons with disabilities as well as assist local, state and federal transportation planners in achieving better inefficiencies and cost effectiveness, while protecting privacy and security of persons who use IoT technology.
28. Barletta (PA), Lipinski (IL): Requires all legacy tank cars retrofit for continued Class 3 Flammable Liquid service to include enhanced top fittings protections for pressure relief valves.
29. Lynch (MA): Provides for an additional, independent safety review of an approved pipeline route or segment of route, should a state or tribal government deem it necessary.
I expect that all three of these amendments will pass.
