Review - HR 4550 Introduced – FY 2022 THUD Spending

Last week, Rep Price (D,NC) introduced the committee marked-up version of HR 4550, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2022. The Committee Report on the bill is also available. The bill includes one pipeline provision of note and one industrial control system provision. Additional information and guidance is provided in the Report on automated vehicles, aviation safety, rail cybersecurity, and LNG by rail.

This bill is being rolled into the first FY 2022 minibus, HR 4502 as Division G. The House Rules Committee will be meeting tomorrow to formulate the Rule on that minibus, which will be considered on the floor of the House this coming week. There have been 78 amendments suggested for Division G, none of which are of particular interest here. The combined bill (because of the lack of the Hyde Amendment – abortion funding restrictions) will probably pass on a party-line vote. There is a chance that a Hyde Amendment provision will be added in a floor vote, that would probably increase the chances of this bill passing.
