Bills Introduced – 9-22-21

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session there were 48 bills introduced. Two of those bills may received additional coverage in this blog:

S 2792 An original bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2022 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes. Sen. Reed, John [D-RI]

S 2803 A bill to authorize funds for Federal-aid highways, highway safety programs, and transit programs, and for other purposes. Sen. Lee, Mike [R-UT]

S 2792 will probably end up being the language substituted for the House version of HR 4350 (still under consideration in the House) when the Senate takes up that bill.

S 2803 is an alternative version of the annual surface transportation authorization. This bill will die untouched if/when HR 3684 passes in the House next week. It is still possible that that bill could fail due to intra-party fighting by the House Democrats. If HR 3684 fails, this Republican alternative still does not have much of a chance, but I will watch it none-the-less.
