Worthy of Note (17 July 2009)

From the SBTC:

Now that both the Senate and House have passed this bill [SBIR reauthorization bills H.R. 2965 & S. 1233], it goes to conference committee, a joint Senate-House committee that will work out a compromise bill that both chambers can agree on. There are two types of conferences: a formal conference, where Senators and Representatives from the committees with jurisdiction over this legislation will be selected to meet and work out the details of the bill, or an informal conference, which is usually conducted by staff. It has been indicated that an informal conference is most likely to occur.


  1. That sounds like more railroading to me.

  2. I was thinking more along the lines of sending the Undersecretary for Administrivia to negotiate Middle East peace. But we'll see.

    You know for a Democracy, we sure have a damned opaque power structure.
