Bills Introduced – 09-30-15

Yesterday there were 30 bills introduced in the House and Senate. Of those two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 3651 To amend title 49, United States Code, to provide for the extension of certain deadlines related to positive train control, and for other purposes. Rep. Shuster, Bill [R-PA-9]

HR 3654 To require a report on United States strategy to combat terrorist use of social media, and for other purposes. Rep. Poe, Ted [R-TX-2]

The introduction of HR 3651 by the Transportation Committee Chair bodes ill for the timely consideration of HR 22, the Drive Act, that was passed by the Senate. That transportation authorization bill includes PTC extension language.

HR 3654 is going to be closely watched by privacy and freedom of speech advocates.
