Bills Introduced – 07-28-17

With just the House in session (and preparing to leave for their summer recess) there were 122 bills introduced. Of those, one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 3623 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to secure and heighten the integrity of elections, and for other purposes. Rep. Sewell, Terri A. [D-AL-7]

I will be watching this bill for cybersecurity provisions.

Just a reminder, the vast majority of bills introduced just before a major break in the session of the various houses of Congress are usually introduced to provide the sponsor with talking points while they are campaigning back in their district. There never was an expectation that most of these bills would ever actually be considered in Congress. Still, they do provide a valuable window into the Congressional mind set.
