House Passes HR 3503

This afternoon the House passed HR 3503, the Department of Homeland Security Support to Fusion Centers Act of 2015 by a voice vote. The ‘debate’ lasted just over ten minutes and no amendments were allowed since the bill was considered under suspension of the rules.

The bill will move to the Senate where it will also, if moved to the floor, will be considered with little debate and no amendments.

I would still like to see this bill amended to include an assessment of the need for surface transportation and chemical facility intelligence analysis capability in DHS to support fusion centers, but that is unlikely to happen with this bill.
