House Skips Cybersecurity Amendment to HR 2397

Yesterday during the consideration of amendments to HR 2397 the sole cybersecurity amendment that was cleared to be offered on the floor (Langevin #7 in the Rules Committee Report) was skipped. Under the rule for the consideration of HR 2397 once an amendment is skipped in sequence it cannot be brought back up.

So if this bill passes, a high probability but not a foregone conclusion in the House, the only cyber-provisions will be the ones put in place by the Appropriations Committee.

The debate continues today with a probable vote late this afternoon.

NOTE: The Senate Appropriations Committee has not yet published their version of the DOD spending bill.
