Bills Introduced – 6-23-20

Yesterday with just the Senate in session there were 20 bills introduced. Two of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

S 4049 An original bill to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2021 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes.  Sen. Inhofe, James M. [R-OK]

S 4051 A bill to improve the ability of law enforcement agencies to access encrypted data, and for other purposes.  Sen. Graham, Lindsey [R-SC]

S 4051 will almost certainly not have anything to do with control systems, so this does not directly fit in with most of the stuff that I write about. There has been significant press coverage (see here for example) and it would seem that there is going to be some push for this bill by the authors to move this bill forward. I am looking forward to reading the actual language, so I am adding it to my tracking list. I just do not know if it will receive additional mention in this blog.
