Hill Watching - Wednesday, April 30th - Health & American Made Products for Infrastructure

In Senate Side, Sen. Brown introduced a bill that is vague, though nice thought, will need to see how he wants to go about accomplishing the bill's goals:

S. 2948. A bill to provide quality, affordable health insurance for small employers and individuals; to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.

And in the House, like this bill's desire to help the American economy:

By Mr. VISCLOSKY (for himself, Mr. ENGLISH of Pennsylvania, Ms. KAPTUR, Ms. SUTTON, Mr. BRADY of Pennsylvania, Mr. OBERSTAR, Mr. WILSON of Ohio, Mr. WILSON of South Carolina, Mr. STUPAK, Mr. SOUDER, and Mr. ALTMIRE):
H.R. 5935. A bill to require certain Federal agencies to use iron and steel produced in the United States in carrying out projects for the construction, alteration, or repair of a public building or public work, and for other purposes; to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition to the Committees on Homeland Security, and Armed 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.
