In the aftermath of the midterm elections, the Republican-controlled House is set to vote on two bills that could affect how the Senate operates and could set the stage for a showdown over President Donald Trump’s agenda.
The two bills are the first major pieces of legislation to emerge from the Senate in recent years, and the first of them is the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act, which would make it a felony to publicly sell or share any “information about a pending or threatened legislative action” in the course of an “investigation” by Congress.
That could mean that a reporter or blogger who is investigating a bill could be criminally charged for violating the law.
The House voted to pass the bill on a voice vote in December, but a number of senators voted against it and its prospects are looking bleak.
The other bill is the Protecting Our Nation From Terrorism Act, a measure that would prevent the federal government from taking any action that could interfere with the country’s ability to protect itself or its citizens from foreign terrorists.
That bill was introduced by Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas), a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, and Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R, Wisconsin) and was reintroduced last week by Sensenrz.
The bill has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary, which will vote on it this week.
If it passes the House, the Protect America Act would make the Federal Aviation Administration the sole agency tasked with overseeing commercial aircraft.
This would allow the FAA to regulate airspace that is not owned by the private companies operating it.
The FAA could also make sure that any aircraft that flies over an airport can’t be shot down by a rogue state or group of terrorists.
The legislation would also prevent the FAA from regulating drones.
The Senate passed the bill last month, but it has been held up by the White House, which argues that it would lead to “unnecessary regulations” and a need to get Congress to pass legislation.
The Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge bill is similar to the Protect Act, except that it requires the FAA “to issue guidance that is intended to protect national security and the safety of the American people from foreign threats and terrorists.”
This would include guidance that includes “the legal obligations of U.S. persons and entities to use, and not to transfer, any of the airspace that they control to foreign countries.”
This bill would also prohibit any agency from “interfering with or limiting or otherwise interfering with a U.s. person or entity’s lawful activities in a manner that impedes the U.,s.
persons or entities’ ability to perform their lawful functions.”
The other measure would ban the federal Bureau of Prisons from spending money on “research or development in the United States.”
The Bureau of Labor Statistics has a similar rule on its website.
The bills are also similar to an earlier version of the Protect legislation, which was passed by the House last year.
That version also included provisions that would require a government-approved study of the benefits of the bill before it could be enacted, and it would prohibit the use of public funds for any research that might result in a study that could harm the federal budget.
The Protect bill also included a requirement that the government provide a two-year delay for any bill that would make changes to federal tax law.
The Protect and Protect bills have been controversial, but both bills have garnered bipartisan support.
The Stop Trading Act is supported by more than 70 Republicans in the House and more than 90 Republicans in both chambers of Congress.
The Trade and Privacy Act, the companion bill in the Senate, has a far more bipartisan majority, but has garnered little support from lawmakers who voted against the Protect and Privacy bills.
