House Accepts HR 4310 Conference Report

As expected the House voted yesterday along generally bipartisan lines to agree to the Conference Report on HR 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act FY 2013. The vote was 315 to 107 with 30 Republicans and 77 Democrats voting against the measure.

A unanimous consent agreement was reached in the Senate for consideration of the Conference Report, probably sometime today. There will be one hour of debate and a vote on the measure.

As I noted in an earlier blog post there are a number of cyber related provisions included in the final version of the bill including requirements for defense contractors to report cyber-breaches and provisions for secure development requirements for defense software.
