HSGA Business Meeting – 5-12-21

Today the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee met and considered 14 bills. This included four cybersecurity related pieces of legislation. Three of the four cybersecurity bills were ordered reported favorably by voice votes, two after substitute language was adopted. The fourth was held over pending additional work on amendments.

The approved bills were:

• S. 1097, Federal Rotational Cyber Workforce Program Act,

• S 1316, Cyber Response and Recovery Act, as amended,

• S 1350, National Risk Management Act of 2021, as amended.

The bill that was held over was S. 1324, Civilian Cyber Security Reserve Act.

The GPO printed official versions of all four bills this morning. I will be reviewing the introduced language in the coming days. The substitute language approved today will not be available for some time.
