Committee Meetings – Week of 5-10-20

With just the Senate in town this week (the House may return next week) there are only twelve hearings scheduled (one House COVID-19 hearing) with COVID-19 or nominations being the focus of all but one of those hearings. The one odd-ball hearing is on cybersecurity.

Solarium Commission Hearing

On Wednesday the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold a video conference on “Evolving the U.S. Cybersecurity Strategy and Posture: Reviewing the Cyberspace Solarium Commission Report”. All four witnesses are members of the Solarium Commission:

• Angus S. King, JR., Co-Chair;
• Mike Gallagher, Co-Chair;
• Suzanne E. Spaulding; and
• Thomas A. Fanning

There are currently no instructions on the hearing web site on how the public may view the video conference.

The Cyberspace Solarium Commission released their report back in March, but it has been eclipsed by the whole COVID-19 mess. It will be interesting to see how the HSGAC reacts to the recommendations made in this hearing.
