Review - S 1193 Introduced - US-Israel Cybersecurity Cooperation Enhancement Act

Last month Sen Rosen (D,NV) introduced S 1193, the United States-Israel Cybersecurity Cooperation Enhancement Act of 2021. The bill would require DHS to establish a grant program to support joint US-Israeli cybersecurity research, development, and commercialization efforts. The bill authorizes a minimum of $6 million to support the grant program each year through 2026.

Bills similar to this have been submitted over the last couple of Congresses in both the House and Senate. The House has been able to pass these bills, but the Senate has not been able to move one out of Committee. Rosen has submitted similar language as a proposed amendment to S 1260, The Endless Frontier Act, that is currently being considered in the Senate.
