With just about two weeks left before the summer recess I am expecting to see a surge of bills introduced that congresscritters will want to brag about when they talk to various audiences back home. It looks like one of those bills was introduced yesterday along with another Senate spending bill.
S 1329 Latest Title: An original bill making appropriations for Departments of Commerce and Justice, and Science, and Related Agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2014, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Sen Mikulski, Barbara A. (D,MD)
HR 2728 Latest Title: To recognize States' authority to regulate oil and gas operations and promote American energy security, development, and job creation. Sponsor: Rep Flores, Bill (R,TX)
I’m watching the spending bill for possible mention of NIST’s cybersecurity work, the Cybersecurity Framework in particular. I’m not sure that the content of the House bill will be something that I’m interested in, but it could cover safety or (less likely) security issues.
