House Hearings and Markups for the Week
Here are the US House Committee hearings and meetings scheduled for this week that are particularly relevant to Mississippi River Basin issues (along with links to the respective committee hearing web sites). The algal blooms bill that will be introduced at tomorrow’s Science, Space and Technology's subcommittee hearing reportedly will be similar to the “Harmful Algal Blooms and Hypoxia Research and Control Amendments Act of 2010” that was introduced in the last session, passed in the House, but not considered by the Senate.
The Senate is in recess this week and will be back in session next week.
