HR 6868 Passed in House – Cybersecurity Education

On Monday, the House took up HR 6868, the Cybersecurity Grants for Schools Act of 2022. The bill was considered under the suspension of the rules process. After very limited debate, with no opposition voiced, a recorded vote was demanded. That vote took place yesterday and the bill passed with a strongly bipartisan vote of 383 to30.

The bill would expand the scope of the existing the Cybersecurity Education and Training Assistance Program (6 USC 665f) by allowing CETAP grants to go to States, local governments, institutions of higher education, nonprofit organizations, and other non-Federal entities for the purposes of funding cybersecurity education or training programs.

Again, this is another bill that will probably not be considered in the Senate due to time constraints.
