Bills Introduced – 5-4-21

Yesterday, with just the House meeting in pro forma session, there were 57 bills introduced. Two of those bills will receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 2980 To amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to provide for the remediation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities, and for other purposes. Rep. Jackson Lee, Sheila [D-TX-18]

HR 2982 To amend title 32, United States Code, to authorize cybersecurity operations and missions to protect critical infrastructure by members of the National Guard in connection with training or other duty. Rep. Kim, Andy [D-NJ-3]

It will be interesting to see if HR 2980 is going to provide DHS with authority to take remote remediation actions like DOJ did with some of the Microsoft email servers.
