Committee Hearings – Week of 07-07-19

With both the House and Senate back in Washington after their 4th of July recess there is a relatively light committee hearing schedule. Only two hearings of interest here; one on grid cybersecurity and a Rules Committee hearing on the House version of the NDAA.

Grid Cybersecurity

On Friday, the Energy Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing on “Keeping The Lights On: Addressing Cyber Threats To The Grid”. The witness list is not yet available.

HR 2500 Rule

On Tuesday the House Rules Committee will meet to consider HR 2500, the FY 2020 National Defense Authorization Act. To date, a total of 658 amendments have been submitted to the Committee for consideration. This hearing will determine which of those amendments will be considered on the Floor of the House.

The bill is currently scheduled to be considered on the floor starting on Wednesday with a final vote likely on Friday.

NOTE: While there had been some talk about including the DHS appropriations bill (still not published by the House Appropriations Committee) in this bill as a way to move that forward, it does not look like that will happen.
