GovTrack Insider, our Kickstarter-backed work to summarize bills in Congress, has resumed. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
A bill to amend the Commodity Exchange Act, to prevent excessive price speculation with respect to energy commodities, and for other purposes.
The bill’s title was written by its sponsor.
This is the first step in the legislative process.
Reported by Committee
A committee has issued a report to the full chamber recommending that the bill be considered further. Only about 1 in 4 bills are reported out of committee.
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 3268”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
