Review - HR 5412 Reported in House – FY 2022 Intel Authorization Act

Last month, the House Intelligence Committee published their report on HR 5412, the Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022. On September 30th the Committee adopted substitute language for the bill and ordered it reported favorably. The revised language is now available. None of the changes made in the language deal with cybersecurity issues (there is one minor anti-drone provision added) and the report provides no intelligence community taskings of significance to corporate cybersecurity interests.

This bill is now cleared for consideration by the full House. The Majority Leader’s web site mention that the bill may come to the floor this week, but that is looking increasingly unlikely. It is more likely to be considered when the House comes back from their Veterans week recess in the week before Thanksgiving. The House is very likely to pass this bill with at least some bipartisan support.
