HR 2608 Passes on Second Try - FY2012 CR

Last night the House passed an amended version of HR 2608 that included the continuing resolution previously voted down by the house with one relatively minor change that should not directly impact the chemical security or cyber security communities; unless, of course, your company plans to get a DOE Title 17- Innovative Technology Loan Guarantee in FY 2012.

You remember HR 2608; it failed on Wednesday night on a bipartisan rejection of the continuing resolution. That version was further amended by adding a rescission of $1 Million of ‘unobligated funds’ from that DOE program. The revised bill passed 219-203.

The bill does include an extension of the §550 authorization for the CFATS program until November 18th {§130}.
