Apologies for being late with this, but I've been busy with my dad's death.
There are two topics, the AAS, and the US Senate.

The American Astronomical Society has a leap second committee
They solicit input from professional and amateur astronomers.
They are taking input until September 15, which is Friday.

Bill Number S.2802 for the 109th Congress
(note the trailing colon which some mail browsers omit when fetching)

This was introduced in May. The initial version had a section
508 which redefined the Calder act such that the official time of
the US would be based on UTC rather than GMT.

It appears that the version as reported in the senate in July
struck out all of section 508. I could be wrong.
