Bills Introduced – 02-26-18

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate back in town after the long week off for President’s day, there were 21 bills introduced. Of those, two may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 5089 To improve threat information sharing, integrated operations, and law enforcement training for transportation security, and for other purposes. Rep. Barragan, Nanette Diaz [D-CA-44]

HR 5094 To direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to improve suspicious activity reporting to prevent acts of terrorism, and for other purposes. Rep. King, Peter T. [R-NY-2]

I will be watching HR 5089 for its potential effects on chemical transportation security.

While I suspect that HR 5094 will be very generic in scope, I will be watching it for potential impacts on chemical facility security and (a real remote possibility) cybersecurity.
