Default No bills pending in Congress

When I last checked the websites of pending legislation in Congress, there was nothing that had the keywords "Delta Queen", "SOLAS", or "Safety of Life at Sea". While we all know about it, I don't think there is any pending legislation. It would be up to a congressman to introduce a bill for an exemption. Without a bill, the previous exemption just expires quietly. So, unless I am confused, we need to be telling our congressmen to support the exemption, but someone needs to actually submit a bill, or amendment to a pending bill, to actually get the exemption going. Maybe Marian's congressman from Cincinnati could get involved, since he was recently awakened to the issue.
