On the U.S. House Science, Space and Technology Committee, U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., was able to amend the “National Institute of Standards and Technology for the Future Act" to include the funds with the committee backing the amendment. U.S. Reps. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., Bill Posey, R-Fla., Michael Waltz, R-Fla., and Dan Webster, R-Fla., all backed the amendment which also “directs NIST to identify the source of the failure, issue recommendations on how to prevent future collapses, and inform building codes for similar structures.”

At the end of May, Waltz introduced the bill, which has 60 cosponsors–all part of the Republican minority–including U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., U.S. Rep. Neal Dunn, R-Fla. and U.S. Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla.
