Two House committee hearings to be aware of this week:
- Committee on the Judiciary, May 14, Subcommittee on
Commercial and Administrative Laws and the Subcommittee
on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security,
joint hearing on Allegations of Selective Prosecution Part
II: The Erosion of Public Confidence in Our Federal Justice
System, 2 p.m., 2141 Rayburn.
- Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, May 14,
hearing on Should FDA Drug and Medical Device Regulation
Bar State Liability Claims? 10 a.m., 2154 Rayburn
Witnesses aren't listed yet for the Oversight hearing, which we assume will beat up on the Supreme Court's decision in Riegel v. Medtronic. (Earlier PointofLaw post here.) The American Enterprise Institute held a discussion on federal pre-emption issues in February, and transcript and background materials are available here.
