Senate CFATS Bill No Longer on Agenda

Yesterday I reported that the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee would consider a CFATS related bill during their business meeting on Wednesday. A revised agenda for that meeting [PDF download link] was posted on their web site today and the unintroduced CFATS bill is no longer listed. No explanation was given, but I suspect that there was some dissention within the Committee about parts of the proposed bill. I don’t know what those parts would be, but the standard areas for disagreement over the last 11 years have been IST provisions, worker participation requirements, and civil suit provisions.
