Bills Introduced – 06-05-18

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session there were 36 bills introduced. Of these, three may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 6001 To safeguard certain technology and intellectual property in the United States from export to or influence by the People's Republic of China and to protect United States industry from unfair competition by the People's Republic of China, and for other purposes. Rep. Conaway, K. Michael [R-TX-11]

S 2987 An original bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2019 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes. Sen. Inhofe, James M. [R-OK]

S 2991 A bill to amend the Rural Electrification Act of 1936 to provide that cybersecurity and grid security improvements are eligible for electric loans and loan guarantees under that Act. Sen. Bennet, Michael F. [D-CO]

The wording of the title for HR 6001 is vague enough to possibly cover industrial control systems, but it probably will not. This bill will probably not be mentioned again in this blog.
