HR 3410 Passes in House on Voice Vote

After just 17 minutes of debate, the House today passed HR 3410 on a voice vote. As I noted earlier today, the bill would require to consider electromagnetic pulse (EMP) events, both natural and man-made, in its emergency planning processes. No new money was allocated to DHS to implement these new planning requirements.

If this bill makes it to the floor of the Senate (always an iffy proposition in the 113th Congress) I would expect that it would be adopted in that body under their unanimous consent process.
