S 3607 Introduced

Yesterday Sen. Lautenberg introduced S 3607, the FY 2011 DHS Appropriations Bill. The Committee Report is available (Sen. Report 111-222) and a version of the bill is available on Thomas.Loc.gov today, but the GPO web site does not yet have a .PDF version available for download. Lots of stuff to review here, but arguably the most important provision for the chemical security committee is the language in the bill for the CFATS authorization extension. No surprises here, the language is straight forward with no complications:
“Sec. 543. 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 `on October 4, 2010' and inserting `on October 4, 2011'.”
It is easier to review the .PDF version than the one currently available on the Library of Congress site. I’ll wait to do my detailed review until after the GPO version becomes available. Besides, nothing more will probably be done on this bill until after the summer recess.
