A total of 57 bills were introduced in the House and Senate yesterday. Only two of them may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
HR 3128 Making appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2016, and for other purposes. Rep. Carter, John R. [R-TX-31]
S 1806 A bill to protect consumers from security and privacy threats to their motor vehicles, and for other purposes. Sen. Markey, Edward J. [D-MA]
A copy of HR 3128 is available from the GPO is available and I will be reviewing it later today for specific information on chemical security and cybersecurity. I don’t expect to find any in the actual bill, but when the Committee Report on the bill is published I will almost certainly find items of interest upon which I will be reporting.
Sen. Markey’s bill introduced yesterday had a significant boost by an article posted on Wired.com about a live hack of a vehicle on a public road way. I suspect that action on this bill (or others sure to come) may be accelerated because of this stunt.
