Bills Introduced – 4-19-21

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate in session, there were 55 bills introduced. One of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 2659 To establish a grant program at the Department of Homeland Security to promote cooperative research and development between the United States and Israel on cybersecurity. Rep. Langevin, James R. [D-RI-2] 

This is likely a companion bill to S 1193 that was introduced last week. I will also be watching this bill for language and definitions that specifically include control system cybersecurity coverage.

NOTE: A companion bill is a piece of legislation that is introduced in both the House and Senate to allow for the legislative process to begin in both houses of Congress at the same time. Theoretically, this is done to speed the process by which the bill gets to the President’s desk, but it is typically done as a way to garner more attention in the press.
