Review - HR 5376 to be Considered in House – Build Back Better Act

As I mentioned this morning, the House is currently scheduled to take up HR 5376, the Build Back Better Act some time this week (probably later rather than sooner). This bill has undergone a number of different revisions since it was introduced. The review in this post comes from the version being reported by the House Rules Committee. The bill includes $489 million in cybersecurity spending in three different sections and two cybersecurity mentions in passing.

It is likely that the Democrats will be able to muster adequate support from within their ranks to pass this bill in the House. They are going to need it since they are going to get no support from Republicans. It is still not clear if this bill will be able to clear the Senate.
