S 1917 Passed in Senate – K-12 Cybersecurity

Yesterday, the Senate took up and passed S 1917, the K-12 Cybersecurity Act of 2021, under the Senate’s unanimous consent process. There was no debate and no vote. The House will not take up the bill until sometime after it returns from their Summer Recess in September.

A version of this bill was introduced in the House (HR 4691), but there is also a competing bill (HR 4005). There has been no action on HR 4005, but HR 4691 has been adopted by the House Homeland Security Committee. The House leadership will determine if HR 4005 or S 1917 will be the bill considered by the House. In either case, the bill will almost certainly be considered under the suspension of the rules process.
