Bills Introduced – 09-07-16

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session, 20 bills were introduced. Of those four may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 5943 To amend the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 to clarify certain allowable uses of funds for public transportation security assistance grants and establish periods of performance for such grants, and for other purposes. Rep. Donovan, Daniel M., Jr. [R-NY-11] 

HR 5944 To amend title 49, United States Code, with respect to certain grant assurances, and for other purposes. Rep. Upton, Fred [R-MI-6]

H Res 847 Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives about a national strategy for the Internet of Things to promote economic growth and consumer empowerment. Rep. Lance, Leonard [R-NJ-7]

S 3295 A bill to authorize the Secretary of Homeland Security to work with cybersecurity consortia for training, and for other purposes. Sen. Cornyn, John [R-TX] 

The first two House bills will be of interest here only if they deal with chemical transportation safety or security issues.

H Res 847 may be a companion resolution to S Res 110 introduced last March by Sen. Fischer.

S 3295 may be a companion bill to HR 4743 that was passed in the House with only three dissenting votes.
