Bills Introduced – 09-04-18

On Tuesday with both the House and Senate in Washington there eleven bills introduced. Of these one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 3405 A bill to reauthorize the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Program of the Department of Homeland Security. Sen. Johnson, Ron [R-WI]

This is the Senate version of a long-awaited reauthorization bill {I do expect that Rep. McCaul (R,TX) will propose one as well}. The official version of the bill has yet to be printed, but the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has a committee draft of the bill on its site. I will have a more detailed review of the bill later, but it does include some ‘regulatory relief’ on explosive chemicals and would extend the CFATS program for five years.
