Bills Introduced – 07-26-19

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session, and the House preparing to leave for their summer recess, 176 bills were introduced. As is typical with bill introductions before a long recess, the vast majority of these bills were introduced to show that the congresscritters were concerned about a controversial topic, but with no intention of further working the legislative process. There were two bills introduced yesterday that will receive additional coverage on this blog:

S 2297 A bill to authorize appropriations for the Coast Guard, and for other purposes. Sen. Sullivan, Dan [R-AK] 

S 2299 A bill to amend title 49, United States Code, to enhance the safety and reliability of pipeline transportation, and for other purposes. Sen. Fischer, Deb [R-NE] 

The House version of the Coast Guard authorization bill, HR 3409, passed earlier this week by a voice vote in the House.

S 2299 is probably the Senate version of the PHMSA pipeline safety program reauthorization.
