Bills Introduced – 3-29-23

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate in session, there were 612 bills introduced. That is not a typo or misprint, 612 bills were introduced, 521 [HR 1844 thru HR 2364] of those bills were introduced by Rep Biggs (R,AZ) and five of his fellow Republican bomb-throwers. It looks like they are targeting every major spending category, if that is the case, more bills are coming as a lot of agencies have not yet been mentioned. DHS, DOE and DOD have not yet been targeted, but I do not think that they will be exempted from this attack.

 It will be a while before we see the text of these bills, but I suspect that they are another attempt to gum up the works of the House. It is certainly going to be a problem for the Government Printing Office and the Clerk of the House. I currently only plan on ‘following’ one of these bills, HR 1844, just to see what is going on, but I will mention any future additions to the list.

Of the remaining 91 bills introduced yesterday, there are two that will see additional coverage in this blog:

S 1044 A bill to improve rail safety practices and for other purposes. Fetterman, John [Sen.-D-PA]

S 1050 A bill to secure the bulk-power system in the United States. Scott, Rick [Sen.-R-FL]
