Bills Introduced – 04-07-16

The Senate was still alone on the Hill yesterday and a total of 13 bills were introduced. Of those only one was of potential specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 2764 A bill to require the disclosure of information relating to cyberattacks on aircraft systems and maintenance and ground support systems for aircraft, to identify and address cybersecurity vulnerabilities to the United States commercial aviation system, and for other purposes. Sen. Markey, Edward J. [D-MA]

By the description given this bill looks like the three amendments that Markey introduced on Wednesday to HR 636. That is an interesting move on his part. It would suggest that he does not think that those amendments will be considered on the Senate floor (I made that comment yesterday), but that they have some chance of being considered separately before the end of the year. That is highly unlikely since in an election year neither the Senate or the House typically take up legislation that should have been included in an authorization bill that was passed.
