Bills Introduced – 02-23-18

Last Friday, with the House and Senate meeting in pro forma session (almost all of the members were back in their districts), there were 9 bills introduced. Of those, two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 5079 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require the Department of Homeland Security to develop an engagement strategy with fusion centers, and for other purposes. Rep. Bacon, Don [R-NE-2]

HR 5081 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to establish within the Transportation Security Administration the Surface Transportation Security Advisory Committee, and for other purposes. Rep. Katko, John [R-NY-24]

I will be watching HR 5079 for the specific types of engagement being proposed to see if they might have an impact on information sharing in chemical security or cybersecurity areas.

HR 5081 will almost certainly be covered here for its potential impact on chemical transportation security activities.
