Bills Introduced – 10-02-17

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session, there were 30 bills introduced. Of those, two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 3895 To promote the use of smart technologies and systems in communities, and for other purposes. Rep. DelBene, Suzan K. [D-WA-1]

HR 3901 To direct the Secretary of Transportation to establish the Strengthening Mobility and Revolutionizing Transportation (SMART) Challenge Grant Program to promote technological innovation in our Nation's cities. Rep. DeSaulnier, Mark [D-CA-11]

I suspect that neither bill will be covered here in the future, but I will be watching to see if there are any cybersecurity provisions in either bill. If you are going to promote smart technology, it would seem to me to be smart to include promoting the cybersecurity of that tech. Anyone wanna take any bets on how smart congresscritters are?
