Bills Introduced – 05-07-14

Yesterday there were 31 bills introduced in the House and Senate, but only one of those might possibly be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4598 Latest Title: To provide the heads of agencies with direct-hire authority to appoint qualified candidates to positions relating to information technology, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Garcia, Joe (D,FL)

The Federal hiring process is complicated to say the least and this bill looks like an attempt to make it easier to higher IT professionals. Further coverage here, though, would depend on how it defines such professionals and whether it includes specific provisions for cybersecurity personnel.
