Bills Introduced – 05-18-15

There were 26 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday. Of those two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 2396 To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act with respect to the regulation of health software, and for other purposes Rep. Blackburn, Marsha [R-TN-7]

HR 2402 To amend the Federal Power Act to prohibit the public disclosure of protected information, and for other purposes Rep. Lofgren, Zoe [D-CA-19]

Blackburn has tried to limit the FDA’s authority to regulate non-patient-contact software in the past, but it is too early to tell what regulation or lack thereof is being covered here.

HR 2402 is probably another effort to codify critical electrical infrastructure information in light of the current NARA rulemaking that is underway.
