Bills Introduced – 07-16-15

There were 54 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday as the law makers headed home for the weekend. Of those bills three may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 3093 To direct the Secretary of Transportation to make certain changes in the implementation of the Compliance, Safety, Accountability program of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and for... Rep. Gibbs, Bob [R-OH-7]

HR 3102 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to reform programs of the Transportation Security Administration, streamline transportation security regulations, and for other purposes. Rep. Katko, John [R-NY-24]

S 1800 An original bill making appropriations for Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies programs for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2016, and for other... Sen. Moran, Jerry [R-KS]

I will only be mentioning HR 3093 again if it contains provisions that would specifically affect chemical transportation.

TSA reform typically affects passenger air operations as this is where most (including congresscritters) people interact with TSA. I will only mention HR 3102 if it includes surface transportation changes that effect chemical transportation.

S 1800 (like HR 3049 earlier this week) will only be of interest here if it contains cybersecurity language (in the bill or report) pertaining to FDA devices.
