Any idea about this bill's chances?

I serve on the board of a charity that provides three days' worth of emergency food to clients who qualify. Volunteers drive many miles to pick up donated food and bring it to the distribution center, where clients come to get the food. Perhaps they should also be covered by a "feed the hungry" mileage rate. However, it's not worth suggesting any amendments if this is "the bill to nowhere".
