Bills Introduced – 05-12-15

There were 72 bills introduced in the House and Senate yesterday. Three of those bills may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 2261 To facilitate the continued development of the commercial remote sensing industry and protect national security. Rep. Bridenstine, Jim [R-OK-1]

HR 2271 To amend the Federal Power Act with respect to critical electric infrastructure security, and for other purposes. Rep. Latta, Robert E. [R-OH-5]

HR 2277 To prohibit employers from compelling or coercing any person to authorize access to a protected computer, and for other purposes. Rep. Perlmutter, Ed [D-CO-7]

Not sure what kind of ‘remote sensing’ equipment being considered in HR 2261. If it is space based I’ll probably discontinue following this bill.

I’ll continue following HR 2271 only if it includes cybersecurity provisions which is likely.

HR 2277 probably deals with personal computers, if so this will be the last mention of this bill.
