Export Control Hearing Postponed

By June 18, 2009Trade

The House has stacked up roll call votes on 26 amendments to an appropriations bill, so committee hearings were interrupted today.

The House Homeland Security Committee mark-up of H.R. 2868, the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Act, didn’t get very far at all before the committee broke. Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) did have an opening statement. (Earlier post.)

NAM President John Engler was scheduled to testify before  a House Foreign Affairs Committee subcommittee hearing on export controls and the Export Administration Act. That hearing was postponed.
