Bills Introduced – 03-09-20

With both the House and Senate in session there were 46 bills introduced. One of those bills will receive future coverage in this blog:

HR 6160 To extend the chemical facility anti-terrorism standards program of the Department of Homeland Security. Rep. Thompson, Bennie G. [D-MS-2]

This is almost certainly a short-term extension of the CFATS program. Disappointingly, there are currently no Republican cosponsors to the bill. This also probably indicates that the Senate bill, S 3416 (which I have not seen yet), is not acceptable to the Democrats in the House (or at least to Chairman Thompson). Nor is there a likely agreement to break HR 3256 out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The current authorization ends April 18th.
