Bills Introduced – 07-11-19

Yesterday with both the House and Senate in session there were 64 bills introduced. Four of those bills may see additional coverage in this blog:

HR 3699 To codify the Transportation Security Administration's responsibility relating to securing pipelines against cybersecurity threats, acts of terrorism, and other nefarious acts that jeopardize the physical security or cybersecurity of pipelines, and for other purposes. Rep. Cleaver, Emanuel [D-MO-5]

HR 3710 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to provide for the remediation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities, and for other purposes. Rep. Jackson Lee, Sheila [D-TX-18]

HR 3714 To amend title 18, United States Code, to reauthorize and expand the National Threat Assessment Center of the Department of Homeland Security. Rep. Deutch, Theodore E. [D-FL-22]

S 2095 A bill to provide for certain programs and developments in the Department of Energy concerning the cybersecurity and vulnerabilities of, and physical threat to, the electric grid, and for other purposes. Sen. Gardner, Cory [R-CO]

I will be watching HR 3710 and S 2095 for specific language referring to industrial control system security issues. For HR 3714 I will be watching for general cybersecurity language while hoping for ICS mentions.
