HR 5856 Reported in Senate – DOD Appropriations

Yesterday the Senate Appropriations Committee filed their report on HR 5856, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2013. There is no mention of cybersecurity or cyber-warfare in the report. While the House version of this report recommended that DOD consolidate the reporting of cybersecurity funding in their budget request, the Senate is completely ignoring the issue.

When the Senate comes back to work in September this bill will probably be one that takes priority. It could also become a vehicle for cybersecurity amendments.
