H.R. 996, The Invasive Fish and Wildlife Prevention Act of 2013 (“IFWP”): H.R. 996 is essentially identical to H.R. 5864, a bill of the same name Rep. Slaughter introduced in the 112th Congress. H.R. 5864 and its Senate companion, S. 3606, died with the end of the last Congress with no action beyond referral to various committees. This year’s version of the bill is very likely to meet the same fate. There is little chance this legislation will pass the U.S. House of Representatives or even make it out of the House Natural Resources Committee. Read more at the PDF icon link.
