Bills Introduced – 11-5-15

Yesterday there were 95 bills introduced in the House and the Senate as the House prepared to depart for their Veterans Day Recess. Of the bills introduced only three may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 3994 To direct the Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to conduct a study to determine appropriate cybersecurity standards for motor vehicles, and for other purposes. Rep. Wilson, Joe [R-SC-2]

H Con Res 92 Providing for a conditional adjournment of the House of Representatives and a conditional recess or adjournment of the Senate. Rep. Woodall, Rob [R-GA-7]

S 2249 A bill to amend title 18, United States Code, to impose criminal penalties for the unsafe operation of unmanned aircraft. Sen. Whitehouse, Sheldon [D-RI] 

HR 3994 will almost certainly include a report to Congress that might actually get used to craft appropriate legislation.

S 2249 the focus in the title on ‘unsafe operation’ sounds interesting, but is certainly prone to causing unintended consequences.

The adjournment resolution sends the House home yesterday for their Veterans Day Recess (excuse me ‘district work session’). The Senate will return to Washington on Monday and probably Tuesday before they start their recess. Both houses of Congress will be back in Washington on Monday, November 16th.
