Out of 63 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday there were two that may be of potential interest to readers of this blog as they concern pipeline safety and cybersecurity response. The bills are:
HR 1640 Latest Title: To amend titles 10 and 32, United States Code, to enhance capabilities to prepare for and respond to cyber emergencies, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Israel, Steve (D,NY)
S 763 Latest Title: A bill to authorize States to enforce pipeline safety requirements related to wellbores at interstate storage facilities. Sponsor: Sen Roberts, Pat (R,KS)
I think that HR 1640 will be similar in nature to S 658 that would authorize the formation of cybersecurity response units within the National Guard.
