Committee Hearings – Week of 04-15-18

With both the House and Senate in session this week the budget process continues. We also have a confirmation hearing for the Coast Guard Commandant.

FY 2019 Budget

These are budget hearings, so they will not delve into policy matters in any great depth. We may see brief mentions of cybersecurity in either (or both) of these hearings.

4-17-18 House – Energy and Commerce Committee  - Oversight of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the FY2019 Budget
4-17-18 House – Homeland Security Subcommittee - FY 2019 Budget - United States Coast Guard

Commandant Confirmation

On Thursday the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee will hold a confirmation hearing on promoting Vice Admiral Karl L. Schultz to Admiral and Commandant of the Coast Guard.

We may hear mention of chemical transportation safety and security issues, but it would be in passing on a high-level policy discussion. Schultz will be in favor of safety and security; detials will come later.
