Bills Introduced – 6-19-14

The House and Senate both continued to work in Washington yesterday and 44 bills were introduced. Two of those bills may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4903 Latest Title: Making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2015, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep Carter, John R. [TX-31]

S 2500 Latest Title: A bill to restrict the ability of the Federal Government to undermine privacy and encryption technology in commercial products and in NIST computer security and encryption standards. Sponsor: Sen Walsh, John E. (D,MT)

I have already discussed the probable provisions of HR 4903 as it proceeded through markup in the House Appropriations Committee.

The Senate bill may or may not contain provisions that specifically apply to control system security. If it does there will be continued coverage of the bill in this blog.
