HR 4842 Mark-up Scheduled

The House Homeland Security Committee added a new hearing to its schedule since I posted my blog about Congressional Hearings on Sunday night. They now have a full committee mark-up scheduled for HR 4842, the ‘‘Homeland Security Science and Technology Authorization Act of 2010’’ tomorrow at 10:00 am EDT. I briefly discussed the cyber security and chemical security issues in the bill that might affect the chemical security community in a blog last month. Subsequently the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats, Cybersecurity, and Science and Technology held a mark-up hearing on the bill. The Subcommittee Action report noted that the amended bill had been passed by a voice vote. None of the amendments listed had any apparent affect on the chemical security provisions. That is not a definitive analysis because the HS Committee web site does not provide copies of the actual amendments nor does it provide a copy of the marked up bill.
