HR 2477 Text

As of 4:00 EDT today the GPO and still do not have a copy of HR 2477 available to the public. Fortunately a reader had some pull in DC and got me a copy of the bill. It is extremely short, two pages, two sections. I still don’t understand why GPO hasn’t gotten this printed when they have had a number of other lengthier documents out today, much less yesterday or the day before. Oh well, maybe they know it isn’t going any where. In any case, here is the summary Section 1 – Short title: “Chemical Facility Security Authorization Act of 2009” Section 2 – “SEC. 2. EXTENSION OF AUTHORITY OF SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY TO REGULATE THE SECURITY OF CHEMICAL FACILITIES. Section 550(b) of the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2007 (Public Law 109-295; 6 U.S.C. 121 note) is amended by striking ‘‘three years after the date of enactment of this Act’’ and inserting ‘‘on October 1, 2012’’. I wish all laws were this easy to read. Well, maybe I don’t; why would anyone read my blog explanations of legislation?
