Bills Introduced – 07-17-18

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session there were 37 bills introduced. Of these, three may be of specific interest to readers of this blog:

HR 6399 To direct that certain assessments with respect to toxicity of chemicals be carried out by the program offices of the Environmental Protection Agency, and for other purposes. Rep. Biggs, Andy [R-AZ-5]

HR 6401 To assist the Department of Homeland Security in preventing emerging threats from unmanned aircraft and vehicles, and for other purposes. Rep. McCaul, Michael T. [R-TX-10]

HR 6407 To require the Administrator of General Services to transfer certain surplus computers and technology equipment to nonprofit computer refurbishers for repair and distribution, and for other purposes. Rep. Garrett, Thomas A., Jr. [R-VA-5]

My interest in the first two bills should be rather obvious, but the third is a bit of a stretch for coverage here. What I will be looking for in this bill is any language in the bill that would require agencies to strip all information from the memories from the covered devices before providing them to refurbishers. I do not really expect such language to be there, but I can always hope.
