Bills Introduced - 04-14-15

Yesterday there were 74 bills introduced in the House and Senate. Only two of those will likely be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 1770 To require certain entities who collect and maintain personal information of individuals to secure such information and to provide notice to such individuals in the case of a breach of security... Rep. Blackburn, Marsha [R-TN-7]

HR 1789 To ensure the safety of DOT-111 tank cars by improving standards for new tank cars and upgrading existing tank cars, and for other purposes. Rep. Payne, Donald M., Jr. [D-NJ-10]

Unless HR 1770 contains provisions that affect industrial control systems (unlikely) this will be the last mention of that bill in this blog.

It looks like HR 1789 is the latest entry into the crude oil train safety discussion. As more of these types of bills are introduced, the more likely it is that Congress will actually address some of the issues involved.
