Bills Introduced – 02-14-17

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

HR 1030 To direct the Director of National Intelligence to conduct a study on cyber attack standards of measurement. Rep. Wilson, Joe [R-SC-2]

HR 1049 To enhance the database of emergency response capabilities of the Department of Defense. Rep. Langevin, James R. [D-RI-2]

HR 1030 is almost certainly a repeat of HR 2708 that was introduced in the 114th Congress and died in committee. This will probably suffer the same fate.

HR 1049 is probably going to be a companion bill to S 307 that was introduced earlier this month in the Senate; the official text is still not available on S 307, but there is a draft available. Interesting post here on S 307.
