The Senate and House were back home on Friday, but a pro forma session of the House saw two bills introduced, both of which will likely be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 4869 Latest Title: To provide for Department of Energy fundamental science, basic research activities, and applied energy research and development. Sponsor: Rep Lummis, Cynthia M. (R,WY)
HR 4870 Latest Title: Making appropriations for the Department of Defense for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Frelinghuysen, Rodney P. (R,NJ)
Both of these bills may include cybersecurity language. The DOD spending bill has been published by the GPO, so I just have to wade through that. We will just have to wait and see on the DOE R&D authorization bill.
BTW: The House Rules Committee will be meeting Tuesday evening to craft the rule for the consideration of the DOD bill. Currently that is the only congressional hearing listed for this week that might be of specific interest to readers of this blog.
