Bills Introduced – 12-11-15

With just the House in session yesterday (the Senate having left for a long weekend) there were eleven bills introduced. Only one of those bills may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4240 To require an independent review of the operation and administration of the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and subsets of the TSDB, and for other purposes. Rep. Jackson Lee, Sheila [D-TX-18]

Since the TSDB is an integral part of the TWIC process and the soon (maybe) CFATS personnel surety process this bill will almost certainly be of interest, at least in the long run, to readers of this blog. Of course, the reason Ms Jackson-Lee is offering this now (though her concern is certainly not new) is that well known problems with the TSDB have been used by Republicans as a reason to not use that database as part of the gun permitting process.
