HR 6516 – Technical Corrections to CG Authorization Act of 2010

Yesterday, during a pro-forma meeting of the House (meaning that essentially no one was there), Rep. Oberstar (D, MN) introduced what is probably the last bill of this long career in the House, HR 6516. This bill would make a number of technical corrections to the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010 (PL 111–281) that was passed (as HR 3619) back on September 30, 2010. HR 6516 will be taken up by the House later today. I would expect that this will pass.

It seems odd that it has taken the Transportation Committee Staff over a year to find these discrepancies in this bill and get a corrections bill crafted for the last week (maybe) of the lame duck session of the 111th Congress. Oh well, better late than never.
