Bills Introduced – 9-29-21

Yesterday, with both the House and Senate in session, there were 52 bills introduced. Two of those bills may receive additional coverage in this blog:

HR 5412 To authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2022 for intelligence and intelligence-related activities of the United States Government, the Community Management Account, and the Central Intelligence Agency Retirement and Disability System, and for other purposes. Rep. Schiff, Adam B. [D-CA-28]

S 2902 A bill to modernize Federal information security management, and for other purposes. Sen. Peters, Gary [D-MI] 

I will be covering HR 5412.

The title for S 2902 is more vague than normal. If this is a cybersecurity bill, I will be watching for definitions and language that would include control system security within its coverage. If this bill addresses classified or sensitive but unclassified information protection, then I will be watching for language or definitions that would impact programs affecting chemical, transportation, or critical infrastructure information sharing processes.
