HR 2638CR – The House Continuing Resolution Debated

Yesterday the House Rules Committee reported HR 2638 CR, the House version of the proposed continuing resolution for funding the US Government for the first part of FY 2009. This is HR 2638 was originally the 2008 DHS appropriations bill that was supplanted by ‘Omnibus Appropriations Bill’ in December of last year. The entire text of the original bill was replaced by the new wording and the title was changed to the Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2009.


Division D of the bill (pages 194 – 291) looks to be pretty much the House 2009 DHS Appropriations Bill (HR 6947) though I cannot claim to have made a detailed comparison of the two documents. I have looked at all of the Section 500 ‘add-ons’ and none of them directly affect the chemical facility security community.


As I post this blog entry, the House is conducting a one hour debate of HR 2638.
