HR 908 Mark-up

Yesterday the House Energy and Commerce Committee announced that the Subcommittee on the Environment and the Economy would be holding a mark-up hearing on HR 908 immediately following their scheduled hearing on the NRC tomorrow. Readers will recall that this is one of three house bills being considered in this session that would extend the CFATS authorization for a significant (yet different for each bill) time.

No information is currently available on amendments to be considered, though I expect that Democrats on the subcommittee can be expected to offer water facility, IST and labor involvement amendments to the bill. None of these (maybe a removal of the water facility exception depending on its wording) would be expected to be approved by the Republican controlled Committee.
