HR 5034 Hearing Postponed Over Questions of Constitutionality, Sources Allege

We told you earlier this week that the House Judiciary Committee hearing on HR 5034 was postponed yet again. Although the date was never officially set, it was expected to take place July 14. Sources say there was also supposed to be a hearing on July 1 but that was postponed as well. Why? Apparently there is a question over the bill's constitutionality. We were told that proponents opted to hold back the bill because there are some problems with how certain things were written from a constitutional standpoint. Whether or not that is actually the case depends on who you talk to.
