Transportation Funding Bill Rules Committee Hearing

As I noted in my earlier blog, the House Appropriations Committee held their markup hearing this morning on the appropriations bill for the Department of Transportation. There is not yet a copy of the bill available to review for potential chemical or pipeline safety measures, but the House Rules Committee has announced that their hearing to formulate the rule for the consideration of the as yet unnumbered bill will be on Thursday morning.

Since the House will not be in session Friday, this bill will not be considered on the floor until sometime next week. The bill will certainly be considered under an open rule; lots of time for amendments to be formulated over the weekend.
