Bills Introduced – 02-02-16

There were 34 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday. One of those may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4432 To establish an interim rule for the operation of small unmanned aircraft for commercial purposes, and for other purposes. Rep. Blumenauer, Earl [D-OR-3]

This bill will probably drop off my radar pretty quickly, but I will be watching it to see if it contains any cybersecurity provisions. We know that government drones have been hacked, we might want to try to stop commercial drones from suffering the same fate.

There were two Senate resolutions introduced yesterday that deserve consideration in the January 2016 Inept Timing Award:

S Res 353 A resolution raising awareness and encouraging the prevention of stalking by designating January 2016, as "National Stalking Awareness Month". Sen. Klobuchar, Amy [D-MN]

S Res 356 A resolution recognizing January 2016 as National Mentoring Month. Sen. Isakson, Johnny [R-GA]

This is more common than you would expect.
