Bills Introduced – 3-23-16

Yesterday as the House prepared to leave Washington for its two week (plus) Easter Recess there were 60 bills introduced. Of those two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4851 To enhance electronic warfare capabilities, and for other purposes. Rep. Walorski, Jackie [R-IN-2] 

HR 4860 To authorize the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish the United States - Israel Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, and for other purposes. Rep. Cicilline, David N. [D-RI-1]

The electronic warfare bill will only be of interest if it pertains to cybersecurity in addition to historical electronic warfare techniques. Even then it will be followed here if it contains language concerning control systems that would help inform the defense of privately owned systems.

As with most cybersecurity bills I will be looking closely at definitions to determine if coverage in this blog is appropriate.
