Senate begins consideration process for S 3254

Yesterday the Senate began the consideration process (consideration of the motion to proceed to consideration of the bill) for S 3254, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012. Passage of this bill is one of the priorities for the Lame Duck session. It does contain a number of cybersecurity provisions but none of them specifically address control systems issues.
This is an early part of the consideration process for an important bill. A number of news agencies have reported that it won’t actually be considered until after the Thanksgiving Recess, but Sen. Reid (D,NV) said on the floor of the Senate yesterday that it will be voted on before Thanksgiving.
Yesterday’s action did start the amendment offering process.
