HR 3584 Passes in House

This afternoon the House passed HR 3584, the Transportation Security Administration Reform and Improvement Act of 2015 by a voice vote. While 40 minutes was allocated for the debate of this bill, the House only needed 8 minutes. The bill will now move to the Senate.

While the bill has broad bipartisan support, it is not yet clear that the language in this bill will actually be considered in the Senate (though I suspect that it likely will be). We will have to see if the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee will have substitute language that they would rather see in the bill. The current House language, if it is considered, will likely be passed under unanimous consent procedures.
