Committee Hearings – Week of 9-18-22


With both the House and Senate in Washington this week, we have a fairly light hearing schedule. This reflects a lot of behind-the-scenes meetings on a continuing resolution and other end-of-session priorities. There will be two hearing of peripheral interest here: federal building security and right-to-repair jurisdiction.

Building Security

On Thursday, the Subcommittee on Oversight, Management, & Accountability of the House Homeland Security Committee will hold a hearing on “Federal Building Security: Examining the Risk Assessment Process”. The witness list includes:

• Richard “Kris” Cline, Federal Protective Service,

• Scott Breor, CISA,

• Catina Latham, GAO

Should be an interesting (if probably abbreviated) look at the physical security risk assessment process.


On Wednesday, the Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process of the House Rules Committee will hold an original jurisdiction hearing on “Right to Repair: Legislative and Budgetary Solutions to Unfair Restrictions on Repair”. No witness list is provided at this time.

As I mentioned last week, there are a variety of congressional jurisdictional issues that must be addressed before any legislative work can move forward. This hearing is part of that determination process.
