Bills Introduced – 08-18-17

Yesterday, both the House and Senate met in pro forma sessions. There were ten bills introduced, including one in the Senate. Senate rules do not normally allow for bill introductions during pro forma sessions, but an exception was made in this case. Interestingly, that is one bill that may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 1761 An original bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2018 for intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the United States Government, the Community Management Account, and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System, and for other purposes. Sen. Burr, Richard [R-NC]

As is usual with authorization bills, I will be watching this for cybersecurity mentions.
