Bills Introduced – 07-30-19

On Tuesday with the Senate in Washington and the House meeting in proforma session, there were 94 bills introduced. Three of those bills may receive additional coverage here in this blog:

HR 4091 To amend the America COMPETES Act to reauthorize the ARPA-E program, and for other purposes. Rep. Johnson, Eddie Bernice [D-TX-30]

S 2318 A bill to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to authorize the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish a continuous diagnostics and mitigation program in the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency of the Department of Homeland Security, and for other purposes. Sen. Cornyn, John [R-TX]

S 2333 A bill to provide for enhanced energy grid security. Sen. Cantwell, Maria [D-WA] 

I will be watching HR 4091 to see if it includes language specifically authorizing grid cybersecurity research programs.

I will be watching S 2318 to see if it includes authorization to provide CDM coverage to private sector critical infrastructure facilities.
