Committee Hearings – Week of 7-31-22

 With the House already on Summer Recess, just the Senate will be in Washington this week, eager to be gone. Light committee schedule with one markup hearing of note.

Markup Hearing

On Wednesday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a business meeting. They will take up 3 DC court nominations, 30 pieces of legislation, and 9 postal naming bills. Bills that I will be watching for include:

S ____, Safeguarding the Homeland from the Threats Posed by Unmanned Aircraft Systems Act of 2022,

HR 6825, Nonprofit Security Grant Program Improvement Act of 2022, and

HR 7077, Empowering the U.S. Fire Administration Act;

It will be interesting to see how far reaching the UAS bill is in allowing actual action against UAS at non-federal facilities. The bill may be introduced today, but I doubt the text will be available for review before Wednesday’s hearing.
