With both the House and Senate out of town this week on their extended Memorial Day weekend two spending bills were still introduced in the House on Wednesday. Both may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 2577 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 Rep. Diaz-Balart, Mario [R-FL-25]
HR 2578 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 Rep. Culberson, John Abney [R-TX-7]
The text of both bills is already available and I will be reviewing them later today. I’ll report details of HR 2577 that include any specific mention of new transportation safety requirements. On HR 2578 I’ll be looking for cybersecurity requirements in the NIST portion of the bill.
