Bills Introduced – 8-31-21

Yesterday with the House meeting in pro forma session, there were 31 bills introduced. Two of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 5135 To direct the Secretary of Defense to carry out a pilot program on the implementation of mitigating actions to address vulnerabilities to critical defense facilities and associated defense critical electric infrastructure, and for other purposes. Rep. Crow, Jason [D-CO-6] 

HR 5138 To authorize the Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency to establish an apprenticeship program and to establish a pilot program on cybersecurity training for veterans and members of the Armed Forces transitioning to civilian life, and for other purposes. Rep. Houlahan, Chrissy [D-PA-6] 

I will be watching HR 5135 for language and definitions that would include cybersecurity vulnerabilities in the coverage of the bill. Actually, it will be interesting to see if this bill combines cybersecurity and physical security provisions.
