Bills Introduced – 03-01-19

Yesterday with the House and Senate preparing to leave for the weekend there were 135 bills introduced. Four of these bills may be receiving future attention in this blog:

HR 1420 To amend the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 to promote energy efficiency via information and computing technologies, and for other purposes. Rep. Eshoo, Anna G. [D-CA-18]

HR 1437 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to require the Under Secretary for Management of the Department of Homeland Security to achieve security of sensitive assets among the components of the Department of Homeland Security, and for other purposes. Rep. Correa, J. Luis [D-CA-46]

S 592 A bill to amend the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 to promote transparency in the oversight of cybersecurity risks at publicly traded companies. Sen. Reed, Jack [D-RI]

S 602 A bill to address state-sponsored cyber activities against the United States, and for other purposes. Sen. Gardner, Cory [R-CO] 

All of these cybersecurity bills will be watched to see if they contain specific language addressing industrial control systems. Okay, two of these bills may not actually be cybersecurity related (HR 1420 and HR 1437), so I will be watching to see if they actually address cybersecurity issues.
