Update for Senate HSGA Markup – 5-12-21

The website now lists the bills that will be marked up by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on Wednesday. The thirteen bills scheduled include four cybersecurity related measures:

S 1097, to establish a Federal rotational cyber workforce program for the Federal cyber workforce {Sen. Peters, (D,MI)}

S 1316, to amend the Homeland Security Act of 2002 to authorize the Secretary of Homeland Security to make a declaration of a significant incident {Sen. Peters, (D,MI)},

S 1324, to establish a Civilian Cyber Security Reserve as a pilot project to address the cyber security needs for the United States with respect to national security {Sen Rosen (D,NV)}, and

S 1350, to require the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish a national risk management cycle {Sen Hassan (D,NH)},

The GPO has not yet published official versions of any of these bills, nor can I find them posted to the HSGA web site. Hassan’s web site does have a submission draft copy posted for S 1350, the ‘National Risk Management Act of 2021. I will have a detailed review of that bill, based upon that draft available later this evening. We may see S 1097 published this evening, but I doubt the GPO will get to S 1316 or S 1324 before Wednesday morning.
