S 300 Introduced – DOE Pipeline Security

Earlier this month Sen. Cornyn (R, TX) introduced S 300, the Pipeline and LNG Facility Cybersecurity Preparedness Act. This is a companion bill (identical language) to HR 370 that was introduced in January. The bill would define cybersecurity oversight requirements for DOE over energy pipelines and LNG facilities.

While there is a good chance for committee action on HR 370 in the House, neither Cornyn nor his single cosponsor {Sen. Heinrich (D,NM)} are members of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee to which this bill was assigned for consideration. This means that it is extremely unlikely that the bill will be considered in that Committee.
