Bills Introduced – 01-18-17

Yesterday with the Senate in a short session and the House in a proforma session, there were a total of 39 bills introduced. Of those, one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 584 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to enhance preparedness and response capabilities for cyber attacks, bolster the dissemination of homeland security information related to cyber threats, and for other purposes. Rep. Donovan, Daniel M., Jr. [R-NY-11]

The description of the bill could cover lots of cybersecurity requirements of varying effectiveness. This is one bill that I will be watching for.

There will not be any other sessions of either the House or Senate until Friday and both of those will be short sessions leading to the inauguration.
