Bills Introduced – 01-10-17

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session there were 73 bills introduced. Of those two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 79 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 88 A bill to ensure appropriate spectrum planning and interagency coordination to support the Internet of Things. Sen. Fischer, Deb [R-NE]

It will be interesting to see if S 79 addresses physical security, cybersecurity, or both.

S 88 looks to be a continuation of efforts by Fischer to promote IOT development. How close this will be to S 2607 from the last session. That bill was reported out of committee but never made it to the floor of the Senate.
