Congressional Hearings Week of 4-12-10

Congress is returning from their two-week Easter Recess this week. There is only one hearing currently scheduled that looks like it may be of concern to the chemical security community. Surprisingly this will not be the hearing on the progress of CFATS inspections that was promised by Rep. Jackson-Lee (D, TX); that would still take some time to set-up. No the hearing that might be of interest will be before the Homeland Security Sub-Committee of the House Appropriations Committee on the 15th at 11:00 am EDT. The hearing will look at “DHS Cyber Security Programs – What progress has been made and what still needs to be improved?” Undersecretary Rand Beers (NPPD) and Assistant Secretary Greg Schaffer (Cyber Security and Communications), are scheduled to testify. There is a remote possibility that industrial control system security will be mentioned (briefly if at all) at this hearing.
