Bills Introduced – 7-16-21

With just the House meeting in pro forma session there were 71 bills introduced. Three of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 4461 To establish an independent agency in the executive branch to be known as the Federal Institute of Technology, and for other purposes. Rep. Khanna, Ro [D-CA-17] 


HR 4466 National Strategy for the Global Information Domain Act Rep. Lynch, Stephen F. [D-MA-8]

I will be watching HR 4461 for language and definitions that would indicate coverage of industrial control systems in its scope. I am not holding my breath, but there has been increased congressional attention to cybersecurity mentions in passing and this topic is ripe for such mentions.

HR 4466 (countering information operations) is a little bit beyond the scope of what I normally cover in this blog, but I suspect that it will prove interesting as it moves forward. Since the GPO has already published a copy of the text, it appears that this will be a high-profile bill moving forward quickly in the House.
