Bills Introduced – 04-12-16

With both the House and Senate in session, there were 39 bills introduced. Of those two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 4909 To authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2017 for military activities of the Department of Defense and for military construction, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes. Rep. Thornberry, Mac [R-TX-13]

HR 4911 To impose criminal penalties for the unsafe operation of unmanned aircraft. Rep. Langevin, James R. [D-RI-2]

As always I will be watching the Defense authorization bill for cybersecurity issues.

It will be interesting to see how Langevin defines ‘unsafe operation’.
