Bills Introduced – 04-28-20

Yesterday with the House meeting in pro forma session, there were 22 bills introduced. One of those bills may receive additional attention in this blog:

HR 6642 To authorize video teleconferencing and telephone conferencing of proceedings during the COVID-19 emergency period, and for other purposes. Rep. Quigley, Mike [D-IL-5]

It is not clear from the title if this is about congressional or court remote operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. If this is about court proceedings, it will not be covered here. If it is about congressional proceedings, I may watch it because of my interest in congressional actions on any number of important bills that need to be addressed in the coming months.

Neither Quigley nor his two cosponsors are members of the House Judiciary Committee to which this bill was assigned for consideration. This means that the bill would be unlikely to move forward. But with “Zoom bombing” becoming a thing, it will be interesting to see how (if?) cybersecurity concerns addressed in this bill.
