Congressional Hearings Week of July 4th

Both Houses of Congress will be in session this week but there are no committee hearings scheduled that will be of specific interest to the chemical security or cyber security communities. There are lots of House hearings, but nothing of specific interest. The Senate was not originally scheduled to be in Washington this week so there are very few hearings scheduled for that body’s Committees.

The big thing to watch this week from a security perspective will be the Full House consideration of HR 2219. The House will meet in proforma session today which will allow for additional filing of amendments to HR 2219 that may be considered in the two days of debate that the House leadership currently has scheduled for the DOD Appropriations Bill. Roll call votes tomorrow will be held until the evening and the Majority Leader’s web page warns: “Members are advised that the 6:30 p.m. vote series is expected to last longer than usual.”
