EC Subcommittee Approves HR 6160 Without Amendments

Yesterday the Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee approved HR 6160 without amendment by a voice vote. Comments by Committee Chair Pallone (D,NJ), Chairman Tonko (D,NY) and Ranking Member Walden (R,OR) were all supportive of the bill and the CFATS program in general.

The debate, such as it was (starting at 21:45 in the video), focused on the 18-month length of the extension. Rep. Barragan (D,CA) wants (32:30 in video) new CFATS reauthorization to include look at location of high-risk chemical facilities.
