Review - HR 3313 Introduced - Hack Your State Department

Back in May, Rep Lieu introduced HR 3313, the Hack Your State Department Act. The bill would require the State Department to establish a vulnerability disclosure process (VDP) and a bug bounty pilot program. No monies are authorized in the bill for either program.

Lieu is a member, as are his three cosponsors {Rep Spanberger (D,VA), Rep Pfluger (R,TX), Rep Tenney (R,NY)}  of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, the committee to which this bill was assigned for consideration. This means that there should be sufficient influence to see the bill considered in Committee. I do not see anything in the bill that would engender any organized opposition. I suspect that the bill would receive enough bipartisan support for it to be successfully considered in the full House under the suspension of the rules process.
