Bills Introduced – 03-21-17

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session there were 54 bills introduced. Of these four may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 1647 To establish a Water Infrastructure Trust Fund, and for other purposes. Rep. Blumenauer, Earl [D-OR-3]

HR 1653 To amend certain provisions of the Safe Drinking Water Act, and for other purposes. Rep. Latta, Robert E. [R-OH-5]

S 679 A bill to require the disclosure of information relating to cyberattacks on aircraft systems and maintenance and ground support systems for aircraft, to identify and address cybersecurity vulnerabilities to the United States commercial aviation system, and for other purposes. Sen. Markey, Edward J. [D-MA]

S 680 A bill to protect consumers from security and privacy threats to their motor vehicles, and for other purposes. Sen. Markey, Edward J. [D-MA]

The two water system bills will only receive further mention in this blog if they specifically address facility security or cybersecurity issues.

These two bills from Markey are almost certainly based upon bills that he introduced in the 114th Congress (S 2764 and S 1806 respectively). Neither bill saw any action in the previous session; perhaps it will be different this time.
