With just the Senate in session yesterday there were only 7 bills introduced. Of those just one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
S 2658 A bill to amend title 49, United States Code, to authorize appropriations for the Federal Aviation Administration for fiscal years 2016 through 2017, and for other purposes. Sen. Thune, John [R-SD]
Since the FAA is one of the agencies that could conceivably start regulating control system security, I’ve added it to the list of agencies that I will watch for congressional cybersecurity action in authorization and funding measures. There probably will not be any cybersecurity measures this year, but we did see one minor cybersecurity measure in HR 4441, the House bill on this topic, so I will watch this bill.
