Committee Hearings – Week of 12-17-17

This week with both the House and Senate trying to get things ‘cleaned-up’ so that they can head home for Christmas and New Years, there will only be one hearing of potential specific interest to readers of this blog; another continuing resolution.

Tomorrow the House Rules Committee will hold a hearing to formulate the rule for the consideration of HR 1370, which will be used as the vessel to move forward with a continuing resolution. It will be based on HJ Res 124 which would extend the current spending authorization until January 18th, 2018 and provide for full funding of DOD through the end of the fiscal year.

Note: I can find no specific mention of any cybersecurity provisions in HJ Res 124.

The bill will probably be considered on the floor of the House on Wednesday or Thursday and then in the Senate later the same day. No debate and no amendments in either house.
