Washington
Committee patent reform vote pushed back two weeks
WASHINGTON (4/10/14)--Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) said Wednesday that although the committee has made "enormous progress" on complex issues involved in its patent reform bill, the lawmakers "need additional time to draft the important provisions" that have been the subject of most recent discussions.  

Therefore, he again pushed back the committee's scheduled vote on the bill known as the Patent Transparency and Improvements Act (S. 1720). 

"I have talked to many senators on both sides, and because I want to be sure everyone is comfortable with how these pieces fit together, I will circulate a manager's package the day we return from recess, and the Judiciary Committee will consider that legislation the first week we are back," Leahy said in a statement released Wednesday.

On Friday, Congress adjourns for a two-week Spring District Work session.
