Committee Hearings – Week of 5-12-19

This week with both the House and Senate in session work starts to begin in the House on spending bills. Both Homeland Security Committee are holding markup hearings that include cybersecurity bills.

FY 2020 Spending Bills

These subcommittee hearings are all closed, but we may see their final drafts of the spending bills after the hearings are completed. Full Committee work has yet to be announced.

House – Wednesday – DOD – Subcommittee
House – Wednesday- Energy and Water - Subcommittee
House – Wednesday – Interior, Environment and Related Agencies – Subcommittee

Cybersecurity Markups

On Wednesday the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a business meeting that will include the markup of 17 separate bills, including S 1388, Supply Chain Counterintelligence Training Act of 2019. This bill has yet to be published; we may see it before the hearing on Wednesday. Markups in this Committee are carefully choreographed and little information on the bill or changes made will be gleaned from watching this hearing.

On Wednesday the House Homeland Security Committee will hold a markup hearing for 10 bills, including HR 1158, the DHS Cyber Incident Response Team Act. The House Committee is more forthcoming in what they publish about amendments proposed to bill, so we will have a good sense of what changes (if any) are made to HR 1158 during this markup.
