HR 1668 Introduced – IoT Cybersecurity

Last month Rep. Kelly (D,IL) introduced HR 1668, the Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2019. This is a companion bill to S 734.

Kelly (and at least two other cosponsors) is a member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, one of the two committees to which this bill was assigned for consideration. Rep. Foster (D,IL) is a member of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, the other Committee to which the bill was assigned. This means that there is a decent chance that this bill will be considered in these committees.

This bill is more likely to advance in the House than S 734 is to advance in the Senate. I suspect that there would be significant bipartisan support and the bill would be passed in the House under the suspension of the rules process.
