Bills Introduced – 04-27-17

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session there were 88 bills introduced. Of those, two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 2184 To support meeting our Nation's growing cybersecurity workforce needs by expanding the cybersecurity education pipeline. Rep. McCaul, Michael T. [R-TX-10]

S 965 A bill to improve passenger vessel security and safety, and for other purposes. Sen. Blumenthal, Richard [D-CT]

HR 2184 looks like it will be one of a number of cybersecurity related bills being introduced by McCaul in the next month or so. As usual I will be watching for control system security related provisions, specifically ICS inclusive definitions.

S 965 is probably a companion bill to HR 2173 that was introduced earlier this week. I will be watching both bills for cybersecurity provisions.
