Hill Watching, May 6th, 2008 - Vet's Foreclosure & Infrastructure

In the Senate, another nice bill to help protect our servicemen who have been injured from housing crisis:

By Mr. CASEY (for himself and Mr. ISAKSON):
S. 2981. A bill to amend the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act to provide a one-year period of protection against mortgage foreclosures for certain disabled or severely injured servicemembers, and for other purposes; to the Committee on Veterans' Affairs.

On the House side, I have no idea what the 'nuts and bolts' of this would eventually be, but I like the idea behind - anything to increase chances of improving our country's infrastructure is good to me. We just can't have bridges collapsing and roads deteriorating:

By Mr. BLUMENAUER (for himself, Mrs. TAUSCHER, Mr. GEORGE MILLER of California, Ms. VELÁZQUEZ, Mr. RAHALL, Mr. FARR, Mr. FRANK of Massachusetts, Ms. DELAURO, Mrs. LOWEY, Mr. EMANUEL, Mr. BECERRA, Mr. DEFAZIO, Mr. LATOURETTE, Mr. PETRI, Mr. SHAYS, and Mr. WELCH of Vermont):

H.R. 5976. A bill to establish the United States Commission on Rebuilding America for the 21st Century, and for other purposes; to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition to the Committees on Energy and Commerce, Natural Resources, and Financial Services, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.
