House Passes Two SBA Cybersecurity Bills – 11-2-21

Yesterday the House took up two bills related to cybersecurity support to small businesses by the Small Business Administration. Both bills were considered under the suspension of the rules process and passed with very strong bipartisan support in recorded votes.

The two bills were:

• HR 3462, the SBA Cyber Awareness Act, and

HR 4515, the Small Business Development Center Cyber Training Act of 2021

I have not covered HR 3462. This bill addresses the internal cybersecurity operations of the SBA. The final vote on this bill was 423 to 0.

There was only about 10 minutes of debate on HR 4515. There were no speakers in opposition to the bill. The final vote was 409 to 14 with all of the Nay votes coming from Republicans.

NOTE: Corrected title 11-4-21 0705 EDT
