Yesterday there were 62 bills introduced in the House and Senate. Only two of those bills may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 3000 To require the Administrator for General Services to obtain an antivirus product to make available to Federal agencies in order to provide the product to individuals whose personally identifiable... Rep. Cartwright, Matt [D-PA-17]
S 1732 A bill to authorize elements of the Department of Transportation, and for other purposes. Sen. Thune, John [R-SD]
I can’t wait to see the actual language of HR 3000. It currently looks like it is in the running for the most humorous bill introduced this session.
S 1732 looks like it will be the Senate version of a long-term transportation authorization bill, though it could end up being just another short term stop-gap while Congress still tries to figure out how to fund transportation infrastructure spending. In any case I will be watching it for hazmat issues and now control system issues.
