Bills Introduced – 03-10-16

With the Senate sitting in Washington and the House meeting in a pro forma session there were 21 bills introduced yesterday. Two of those may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 2665 A bill to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require State and local coordination on cybersecurity with the national cybersecurity and communications integration center, and for other purposes. Sen. Peters, Gary C. [D-MI]

S 2670 A bill to provide for the operation of micro unmanned aircraft systems. Sen. Vitter, David [R-LA]

As with most cybersecurity related bills introduced in Congress, I am really only interested in those with some effect on control system security. If there is none in this bill this will be the last you hear about it.

I expect that this will be a do not regulate type of bill coming from Vitter. It will be interesting to see if the definition of micro UAS ties in with the current FAA definition system.
