Bills Introduced – 06-06-16

With just the Senate back in session (the House returns to town today) there were eleven bills introduced. Of those three may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 3017 An original bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2017 for intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the United States Government, the Community Management Account, and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System, and for other purposes. Sen. Burr, Richard [R-NC]

S 3018 A bill to provide for the establishment of a pilot program to identify security vulnerabilities of certain entities in the energy sector. Sen. King, Angus S., Jr. [I-ME]

S 3024 A bill to improve cyber security for small businesses. Sen. Vitter, David [R-LA]

I’ll be watching the Intel authorization bill for cybersecurity related provisions. The same holds true for the other two bills as well.
