HR 3671 Introduced – Consolidated Appropriations FY 2012

Yesterday Rep. Rogers (R,KY), the Chair of the House Appropriations Committee, introduced HR 3671, the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2012. This bill is the spending bill for the remainder of the federal government for this fiscal year. The GPO does not yet have a copy of the bill available, but a Committee press release contains links to the drafts of the various ‘Divisions’ of the bill.

Division A (DOD) and Division D (DHS) are the two primary parts of the bill that will be of potential interest to the cyber security and chemical security communities. Needless to say I have not yet had time to peruse either of these sections in detail. I can tell you however that §540 of Title D does provide the standard extension of the CFATS program through October 4, 2012.

More info to follow.
