Bills Introduced – 1-22-15

There were 130 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday. Of those only two might be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 490 - To provide for a strategic plan to reform and improve the security clearance and background investigation processes of the Federal Government, and for other purposes. Rep. Lynch, Stephen F. [D-MA-8]

HR 505 - To establish a Hazardous Materials Information Advisory Committee to develop standards for the use of electronic shipping papers for the transportation of hazardous materials, and for other purposes. Rep. Lipinski, Daniel [D-IL-3]

HR 490 will only be of specific interest if it includes requirements for non-governmental security clearances. The rules governing the issuance of security clearances for government employees and contractors are slightly different from those issued for the purely private sector.
