Bills Introduced – 08-06-19

Yesterday with both the House and Senate meeting in proforma sessions (almost everyone was back home or on the road, raising money or connecting with local voters) there were 15 bills introduced. Two of those may receive future attention in this blog:

HR 4166 To improve technology and address human factors in aviation safety, and for other purposes. Rep. DeSaulnier, Mark [D-CA-11]

HR 4170 To preempt State data security vulnerability mandates and decryption requirements. Rep. Lieu, Ted [D-CA-33] 

Both are a bit of a stretch for coverage here, but they may contain specific language relating to control system security issues.

I will note in passing that it seems odd for a Democrat to introduce federal preemption language; that is usually a ploy to limit the ability of States to be more proactive and business constricting. I may cover this bill even if it does not include ICS language.
