Bills Introduced – 3-10-21

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate in session, there were 108 bills introduced. Two of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 1736 To direct the Secretary of Transportation to establish the Strengthening Mobility and Revolutionizing Transportation (SMART) Challenge Grant Program to promote technological innovation in our Nation's communities. Rep. DeSaulnier, Mark [D-CA-11]

S 658 A bill to authorize the Secretary of Homeland Security to work with cybersecurity consortia for training, and for other purposes. Sen. Cornyn, John [R-TX] 

I think that HR 1736 may be a companion bill to S 652 that was introduced yesterday. Again, I will be watching it for language and definitions that indicate that transportation cybersecurity concerns are being addressed.

I will be watching S 658 for language and definitions that specifically address control system security training issues.
