WASHINGTON, DC – The House Energy and Commerce Committee today announced its hearing schedule for the week of September 15, 2014.
The Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, chaired by Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE), has scheduled a hearing for Wednesday September 17, at 1:30 p.m. in room 2322 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled “Cross-Border Data Flows: Could Foreign Protectionism Hurt U.S. Jobs?”
