Bills Introduced – 12-21-17

Yesterday with the House and Senate cleaning up in preparation for their Christmas/New Year recess, there were 51 bills introduced. Of those, one may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

S 2261 A bill to protect the administration of Federal elections against cybersecurity threats. Sen. Lankford, James [R-OK] 

I am not sure if there is anything here that will merit further discussion of this bill in this blog, but I thought that it was worth noting, in passing if nothing else. Two things worthy of mention here. First this is supported by an interesting list of bipartisan supporters. Second, the bill was referred to the Senate Rules and Administration Committee instead of one of the committees to which we normally see cybersecurity bills referred.
