Bills Introduced – 12-09-15

With both the House and Senate in session yesterday there were 24 bills introduced. Of those two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4206 To provide for a technology demonstration program related to the modernization of the electric grid. Rep. Sarbanes, John P. [D-MD-3] 

HJ Res 75 Making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2016, and for other purposes. Rep. Rogers, Harold [R-KY-5]

HR 4206 will only be followed in this bill if it includes specific cybersecurity language.

HJ Res 75 is a short term continuing resolution (CR) that would continue current government funding until next Wednesday, December 16th. The House Rules Committee will be meeting later today to construct the rule that will include consideration of this bill on the floor of the House. That Rule will almost certainly include provisions allowing for same day voting on the omnibus spending bill when it is introduced.
