17. The version in the last Congress was referred to a Committee where it seemed to stop

Rubio was the only Republican co-sponsor then:

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/665/cosponsors?searchResultViewType=expanded

so I guess the then chair of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation Roger Wicker of Mississippi, and McConnell, have the main blame for killing it then. Hopefully this means it can get through this time (with Rubio in favour, it could even make it without a tiebreak vote from VP Harris).
