Tuesday, Nov. 19, was set to be a wildly busy day for the House Energy & Commerce Committee. No less than 18 bills were on the docket for markup. To little surprise, the Democrats in charge were a bit ambitious with their goal.
As such, the full Committee markup reconvened Wednesday with H.R. 5035 — the “Television Viewer Protection Act” — last on the list of bills up for review. A bipartisan agreement has been reached, with revisions, and was passed unanimously by the Committee.
