Bills Introduced – 02-25-14

Yesterday both the House and Senate were in the Capitol and a total of 27 bills were introduced, one of which might be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4076 Latest Title: To address shortages and interruptions in the availability of propane and other home heating fuels in the United States, and for other purposes.Sponsor: Rep Shuster, Bill (D,PA)

This bill would extend the 30-day limit on transportation emergencies to allow the DOT Secretary to continue to suspend certain transportation safety regulations to allow for the transportation of propane into areas of the country hit by the current local shortage and low temperatures. Since this was introduced by the Chair of the House Transportation Committee I assume that this will see quick action.
