Congressional Hearings Week of 07-19-10

We have two hearings scheduled for the upcoming week that might be of interest to the chemical security community. Neither of them are directly about chemical security, but they are both looking at programs that have some impact on chemical facility security. Both will be held by Senate committees on Wednesday. The Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation will be holding a hearing at 2:30 pm EDT the reauthorization of the SAFE Port Act. This legislation addresses security at ports around the nation. The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing at 10:00 am EDT will look at the recently released Bottom Up Review of the Quadrennial Homeland Security Review. Since the QHSR looks at how the Department will be working for the next four years, this could affect a wide number of chemical security programs.
