S 333 Reported in Senate – Cybersecurity Consortia

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee published their report on S 333, National Cybersecurity Preparedness Consortium Act of 2019. The bill was adopted in Committee without amendment. The bill is now cleared for consideration by the full Senate. That consideration will take place under the Senate unanimous consent process if it does occur. HR 1062, the companion bill in the House, has not yet been considered in Committee.

The only thing of interest in the report is the clarification that the actions that would be authorized by the bill are already being undertaken by the Department of Homeland Security. This may be why Johnson’s Committee was so quick to take up a bill that was not sponsored by Committee members
