HR 4510 Reported in House – NTIA Reauthorization

Last month, the House Energy and Commerce Committee published their Report on HR 4510, the NTIA Reauthorization Act of 2023. The Committee held conducted a markup of the bill during their July 2023 Business meeting. Substitute language was adopted and the Committee approved the amended bill by a strongly bipartisan vote of 48 to 0. The bill would upgrade the importance of NTIA’s position within the Department of Commerce.

The revised language included a minor change to the proposed §110 for the NTIA Organization Act that I briefly discussed [removed from paywall] earlier.

The bipartisan vote and the lack of an ‘Opposing Views’ section in the Report confirm my earlier assertion that the bill would have strong bipartisan support. This means that the bill will likely move to the floor of the House under the Suspension of the Rules process with limited debate, no floor amendments, and would require a supermajority to pass. This consideration could come at any time.
