The House of Representatives passed the “Stimulus Package” yesterday, and went into their “clean up” mode. As part of that exercise, the house passed H.R. 5714, their version of the United States Army Commemorative Coin Act of 2008. This came one day after the Senate passed S. 2579.
Before the bill was passed, one amendment was offered. Although the text of the amendment was not available at the time I write this, it may have been offered to synchronize this bill with its Senate ounterpart. In these cases, a conference committee will pick one bill and send it back to both chambers for an up or down vote. This will probably be done during the lame duck session that follows the election.
