Bills Introduced – 03-22-16

With only the House in session yesterday there were 19 bills introduced. Of those one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4839 To prohibit the Government from requiring any person to assist in devising a method for breaking the encryption of a wire or oral communication. Rep. Salmon, Matt [R-AZ-5] 

I doubt that there will be any ICS related tie-ins on this bill, but it will be interesting to see what definitions are used. After yesterday’s terror attacks in Belgium, I really don’t suspect that this bill has much of a chance of being considered with all of the calls for law enforcement and intelligence access to encrypted communications being so vehemently renewed.
