Bills Introduced – 07-24-17

Yesterday with both the House and Senate back in session there were 37 bills introduced. Of those, four may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 3358 Making appropriations for the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, and for other purposes. Rep. Cole, Tom [R-OK-4]

HR 3359 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to authorize the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency of the Department of Homeland Security, and for other purposes. Rep. McCaul, Michael T. [R-TX-10]

HR 3362 Making appropriations for the Department of State, foreign operations, and related programs for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, and for other purposes. Rep. Rogers, Harold [R-KY-5]

HR 3364 To provide congressional review and to counter aggression by the Governments of Iran, the Russian Federation, and North Korea, and for other purposes. Rep. Royce, Edward R. [R-CA-39]

As usual I will be watching the two spending bills for cybersecurity measures (probably none in the case of these two bills, but you never know).

HR 3359 is the homeland security bill that I talked about briefly in my blog yesterday. The official text is not yet available, but I may review later today it based upon the committee draft that will be considered tomorrow by the House Homeland Security Committee.

HR 3364 may be of interest if the bill addresses cyber related aggression or cyber response to aggression by these three countries.
