HR 5577 Status Update – 9-29-08

Speaker Pelosi continues to play games with the HR 5577, the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Act of 2008. She extended, twice this weekend, the time limit for the Committee on Energy and Commerce to complete its review of the bill. On Friday it was extended until Saturday. Then on Saturday it was extended until today.


Even if this bill were to be reported out of that committee today, there is little chance that the bill could pass both the House and Senate before congress adjourns sometime later this week.


If anyone can explain to me why this extension was granted, I would certainly like to hear it. There has to be something that I am missing.
