With the Senate already on the road, the House finished up their business for the week so that they could also head back to their districts for a week of campaigning. Before they left they did submit 48 new bills. Two of those bills could be of particular interest to readers of this blog:
HR 5126 To enhance the early warning reporting requirements for motor vehicle manufacturers. Rep. Cartwright, Matt [D-PA-17]
HR 5131 To amend the Help America Vote Act of 2002 to make improvements to voting system technology, election official training, and protecting voting system source code. Rep. Johnson, Henry C. "Hank," Jr. [D-GA-4]
Cartwright’s bill will receive future coverage if it applies to automotive control system vulnerability reporting.
I really doubt that there will be control system language in this bill, but I had to include it in today’s list because the title includes the words ‘source code’.
