The House Energy and Commerce Committee postponed a May 11 markup of legislation (H.R. 908) - Full Implementation of the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards Act - that would extend through fiscal year 2017. The legislation was introduced on March 3 by Rep. Timothy Murphy (R-PA) and co-sponsored by Rep. Gene Green (D-TX). Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) announced that the markup of H.R. 908, which had been scheduled for May 11, would be held at a later date because debate on a bill to restrict health care litigation (H.R. 5) was taking longer than expected. Congress will be in recess the week of May 16, and the committee plans to take up the bill some time after Congress returns.
